Coralville Resident Graduates From Radiation Sciences Program

A Coralville resident, Rosewinter Kodzwa, will receive a bachelor of science degree in Radiation Sciences at the University of Iowa graduation ceremonies Dec. 18, in Iowa City.

The degree graduates have completed training in Radiologic Technology and one of several specialized modality programs, meeting the multi-creditential/multi-competency demands of the increasingly sophisticated radiation sciences profession.

Kodzwa completed the advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Program on Nov. 9. The nine-month educational MRI program accepts students each fall and spring and is one of six advanced offerings in the Post-Radiologic Technology Education Program, which is housed within the Department of Radiology in the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine.

Magnetic resonance imaging technology uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to create diagnostic images of targeted parts of the human anatomy. MRI does not use ionizing radiation to image the patient's body. MRI technologists work in various health care settings, from health-care clinics, mobile clinics and major trauma centers to equipment sales and applications. UI Hospitals and Clinics first offered MRI technology training in 1998.

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 www.uihealthcare.com.
