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.

Brain Foods
Brain Foods

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 n...

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.

Alumni Spotlight

Nika Ramos

My name is Nika Ramos and I am a recent DMS graduate from Casa Loma College.  Looking back now, I would have never imagined when I started this program that I would be in the position that I am now.  We always hope for the perfect office in the best locations.   And imagine working with people who truly care about you and your future.  But tell ourselves we will take whatever we can get.  I say to you, never settle and never stop pushing for your dreams.  I did and now it’s a reality

I had the privilege of interning at Rolling Oaks Radiology in Oxnard, CA which is less than 10 min from my house!  There I was able to work under and be trained by some of the best sonographers in the area.  I was able to scan abdomen, small parts, breast, OB, and spent most of my time scanning in my favorite area, vascular.

Upon completion of my internship, I was fortunate to get hired as a full-time Sonographer at Rolling Oaks, as a vascular tech. Each day brings new challenges and opportunities for growth.  All of which continue to help me as I perform my daily routines and exams which include reflux, fistulas, upper & lower extremity of the arterial & venous, and ABI/TBI’s.

I am registered with ARRT & SPI and I am currently studying for my RVT.   I am truly grateful to Casa Loma and all their staff.  My experience and choice to pursue my dream and passion with them was one of the best decisions I have mad in my life.  The people truly make the difference and set this program apart from the others.  I love what I have learned, and I love what I do.  We can make a difference.  One wavelength at a time.
