What is Medical Sonography?
What is Medical Sonography?
Diagnostic Medical Sonography is a non-invasive and painless medical test that uses sound waves to create images of blood flow, organs, and tissues to assist doctors in confirming or ruling out a specific diagnosis. Also known as ultrasound, sonography is a common tool used by doctors in obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN) to monitor a woman’s pregnancy.

What Are the Duties of a Medical Sonographer?

Brain Foods
Brain Foods
Back in the day (whenever that was) it was common to think that foods shaped like particular organs or body parts would help keep the actual corresponding body part healthy and well.

As scientific thought began to work its way to the forefront, those ideas were treated like wives’ tales or folklore. So, in today's world we can rely on science to point the way towards foods that contribute to optimal cognitive function and we no longer have to spend our time foraging for mini

MRI Gets to the Bottom of Smell, Taste Dysfunction from COVID-19

A study conducted by a team of researchers from the U.S. National Institutes of Health found brain damage in patients who died of COVID-19.

The 25-year-old female patient had been diagnosed with COVID-19, with symptoms including anosmia (loss of smell) and ageusia (loss of taste). Experience with her case was reported by Dr. Khaled Gad, PhD, and Ismail Ibrahi

What is a Physical Therapist Assistant
The job outlook for Physical Therapist Assistants and the demand for their services is so good that government analysts predict more than 1,000 positions will open up every month, on average, for the next decade.

Trained and licensed Physical Therapist Assistants should have little trouble finding job opportunities for the foreseeable future.

There is a high demand for physical therapist assistants, especially due to the aging baby boomers who are more susceptible to chron
Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans
Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans
If you have ever had an MRI scan before, you’ll know how unsettling the experience can be. You’re placed in a claustrophobia-inducing tube and asked to stay completely still for up to an hour while unseen hardware whirs, creaks, and thumps around you like a medical poltergeist. New research, though, suggests AI can help with this predicament by making MRI scans four times faster, getting patients in and out of the tube quicker.

Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans Are Just as Good B

Casa Loma College was founded in April 1966 by Dr. Lewis Kohler and Rev. John Simmons to promote education, health, and welfare throughout the Greater San Fernando Valley. The name Casa Loma was originally selected because it would be a College of Applied Sciences and Arts, the first letter of each word spells C.A.S.A.  The original campus was also located in the foothills around the valley. Thus, the College became the Casa Loma, or the House on the Hill in Spanish.

The college, which originally served the San Fernando Valley, has grown to be so much more. Casa Loma now serves students throughout California and Tennessee. The Magnetic Resonance Imaging program was launched in 2007 and was soon followed by Diagnostic Medical Sonography in 2008. The Physical Therapy Assistant program was launched in 2012.

To better serve our students, the College relocated to the current Van Nuys campus in 2017.

Most recently, the college gained approval to offer online programs including the RN to BSN, Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing, and bachelor’s degree programs in Allied Health Leadership and Management, and Integrative Health Science.

In 2021, the college launched a Separate Educational Center in Nashville, Tennessee offering Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Medical Resonance Imaging, and Allied Health Leadership and Management.

We are very proud of the over 10,000 graduates from Casa Loma who have joined the medical profession and improved healthcare in our communities. We believe their success is a result of the high-quality education, our committed instructors and administrators, and the resources we provide.

As a non-profit California Corporation, Casa Loma is governed by a Board of Regents.
