Iowans Complete Radiologic Technology Training

Delisa Smith of Cedar Rapids and Stephanie Barker of Morning Sun have graduated from the Cardiovascular Interventional (CVI) Program at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.

Smith and Barker completed their education in cardiovascular interventional technology on Aug. 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 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.
