According to Cedars-Sinai, transcranial sonography is a noninvasive and painless ultrasound technique that uses sound waves to evaluate blood flow in and around the brain. Physicians recommend this test to determine if there is anything happening in the blood vessels that is affecting blood flow to the brain. Transcranial Doppler ultrasound is often the test of choice for:

Vasospasm, following a ruptured brain aneurysm
Sickle cell anemia, to determine a patient's stroke risk

Our CEU approved courses are delivered online to accommodate our learner’s varied schedules and typically run for eight (8) weeks or less. Exact schedules are identified in the individual course descriptions. Most courses are instructor led, however, there are a few Independent Study options. The course description explains what the course is about to help you choose which courses are for you that will change your life!

Instructor-led courses can include synchronous and/or asynchronous activity; discussion forums, webinars, and live chats occurring within particular time-frames, which are identified in individual course descriptions.

Casa Loma College awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to those who complete designated courses, workshops and seminars. The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a uniform measurement of individual participation in non-credit programs. One Continuing Education Unit represents 10 contact hours (ex. for a designated course 30 contact hours = 3 CEUs). Records kept for those students who accumulate CEUs will be available upon written request from the Registrar’s Office.

CEU’s are offered in accordance with approval from identified professional organizations.
