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

What Brought You to Teach at Casa Loma College?
In 2012, the Imaging Director at the time asked if I would like to conduct MRI Labs with students, teach several residential classes and online Medical Terminology. It was a chance to give something back to the school that gave me so much by sharing my knowledge.

What Is Your Favorite Part of Working with Adult Students?
It’s exciting to work with adult students because I see the great potential each one of them has. I have been where they are and personally know what kind of success they can achieve.  It’s very inspiring to see the passion they have.

What Attracted You to The Field of Education?
