Continuing a Tradition of Exceptional Service

Iowa Radiology has always been committed to providing exceptional service to our patients and our community. In keeping with that commitment, we are proud to announce our voluntary three-year accreditation with the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). Iowa Radiology achieved this accreditation in partnership with the John Stoddard Cancer Center and UnityPoint Health. To attain accreditation, a breast center must demonstrate compliance with NAPBC’s high standards, determined by an assessment of the center’s clinical services, leadership, research, professional education, community outreach, and quality improvement.

 

Providing Vital Resources for Patient Care

The professionals at Iowa Radiology pride ourselves on providing the highest quality patient-centered care. As an NAPBC-accredited clinic, we provide patients with access to important information about their care options and available resources, including clinical trials, new treatments, genetic counseling, and psycho-social support services. Our customers receive comprehensive care that includes state-of-the-art imaging service and a multidisciplinary approach to identifying the best options for treatment.

 

About the NAPBC

The NAPBC, a quality program of the American College of Surgeons, is a consortium of professional organizations representing the full spectrum of breast care. With a focus on improving outcomes for patients with breast disease, the program seeks to reduce breast cancer illness and death by improving the quality of breast cancer screening, promoting clinical trial participation, and developing scientific standards to measure quality of care.

 

About Iowa Radiology

A group of local doctors formed Iowa Radiology in 2001. They were determined to create a patient-centered practice that is focused on the personal side of radiology as well as the technical side. We have always prioritized making patients as comfortable as possible when visiting our centers and providing them with the information and resources they need to take the best possible care of their health.

 

Iowa Radiology is a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, ensuring our accreditation in mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, and both stereotactic and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. We’re proud to also offer abbreviated breast MRI, an enhanced breast cancer screening option for women with dense breast tissue and less than a 20% lifetime risk of developing breast cancer.
