Clinton Native Completes UI Computed Tomography Training

Angela Hamstra, a Clinton, Iowa, native, has graduated from the Program in Computed Tomography (CT) at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.

Hamstra completed her training in computed tomography on Feb. 23. The six-month training 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 computed tomography training in 1996. CT is an advanced technology that produces cross-sectional images of targeted parts of the human anatomy using X-rays and computing.

CT provides information on pathological conditions that are difficult to evaluate through conventional radiography alone. CT technologists work in various health care settings, from freestanding mobile clinics and major trauma centers to equipment sales and applications.

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
