Central City Native Completes Radiologic Technology Education

A Central City native will graduate from the Cardiovascular Interventional (CVI) Program at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.

Melissa Sperfslage will complete her education in cardiovascular interventional technology on Aug. 25. The six-month education program accepts students each fall and spring and is one of several advanced offerings in the Post-Radiologic Technology Education Program.

UI Hospitals and Clinics first offered CVI technology training in 1992. Cardiovascular interventional technology plays an important role in diagnostic and therapeutic radiologic patient procedures. Concentrating mainly on the patient's cardiac and vascular systems, CVI includes angiography, venography, central venous access, and both nonvascular and vascular interventional procedures.

University of Iowa Health Care describes the partnership between the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and UI Hospitals and Clinics and the patient care, medical education and research programs and services they provide. Visit UI Health Care online at
