DENOTES FEATURED PROFILE
Always a technology leader, IOWA RADIOLOGY was one of the first centers in the country to offer 3D digital mammography (breast tomosynthesis) in 2012.
The procedure uses lower dose x-rays to create a 3D image of the breasts from several angles, enabling their radiologists to visualize thin slice images of breast tissue. Traditional digital mammography yields 2 flat images of each breast, while 3D captures 32 one millimeter slices across the breast. Benefits include earlier detection of smaller cancers and fewer repeat images. Iowa Radiology’s 3D digital mammography unit is the latest technology in breast imaging and offered to all women as an annual screening or diagnostic mammogram. It is ideal for those women who have dense breasts or have had anxiety provoking callbacks for additional images. They also perform MRI’s, CT Scans, bone density scans (DEXA), breast MRI, breast biopsy, digital mammography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound & general x-ray. William Heggen M.D., Lindsey Grandbois D.O., RPh., and Breast Fellowship Trained Radiologists Gopika Myneni M.D. & Jill Westercamp M.D. (Medical Director) are board certified and all facilities are ACR accredited.

Many children and adults continue to struggle with learning in the classroom and the workplace. Recent medical research has demonstrated that often people with reading disabilities have deficits in the transmission of information to the brain through a defective visual pathway. Licensed Optometrist Dr. Erik Romsdahl of CHILD AND FAMILY VISION CENTER specializes in learning-related visual problems for children & adults. His approach consists of a comprehensive optometric evaluation that assesses eye health (visual acuity & refraction), visual efficiency (accommodation, eye teaming & movement) and information processing (identification, discrimination & spacial awareness).
Dr. Romsdahl creates an individualized management plan which includes treatment, guidance & referral if required. Management may require optical correction, visual therapy or a combination of both. Visual therapy, the science of developing & enhancing visual abilities & remediating vision dysfunctions, has been adopted by the American Optometric Association, American Academy of Optometry & other vision-related organizations.
