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.

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.

Janet Nishina, M.S.N., RN

Nursing Program Mentor

Janet Nishina came to Casa Loma College over 20 years ago after being laid off by UCLA as a Clinical Nurse Manager for the Children’s Health Center. The center saw anywhere from 150-350 plus kids a day, in addition to handling the emergent cases. Ms. Nishina has a background working as a Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurse for over 20 years – something she truly enjoyed.

“I have to say a big thank you to Casa Loma College for the many years of experiences that have come my way. I have had an opportunity to be an instructor, assistant director, and director of several programs. I have served on curriculum committees, prepared accreditation, and state nursing reports, and was a part of growing programs for the College, including DMS, MRI, and PTA. I participated in the creation and startup of an AND-RN Program over 13 years ago; however, the program never came to fruition due to a put on all new freeze on new programs by the State. The dream finally came true with the start of our RN-BSN program. I am currently an instructor for the MRI Program teaching Patient Care and Management and a Nursing Program Mentor for the RN-BSN Program. I am also an executive officer for the Vocational Nurse Directors of California.”
