Using iostat, I can get the processes that use up the disk and how much - but can't specify the disk

iostat -o

Using dstat, I can see usage per disk - but not the processes that use it.

dstat -tdD sda

I need to see the processes on the particular disk : sda . But can't seem to figure out how - in spite of looking around for a while. Is it possible -and if so, how?
