University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is the only medical center in Iowa to offer a full range of breast care services provided by people who are conducting cutting-edge research into various aspects of breast health, including breast cancer, breast imaging and therapies to treat breast diseases and conditions.
- We are the first hospital in Iowa to offer digital mammography.
- We are the first hospital in the United States to perform digital breast tomosynthesis imaging, which allows physicians to "page through" the interior of the breast without the superimposition of the other tissues.
- American College of Radiology: This nationwide association of radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, interventional radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians accredited the hospital as a "Breast Imaging Center of Excellence." (2010-Present)
