Manchester Native Completes Computed Tomography Education
A Manchester native will graduate from the Computed Tomography (CT) Program at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.
Megan Leigh Wilson completed her education in computed tomography on Aug. 24. 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 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.
