Brightwood Students Find a New Home!
Late last year Brightwood College in Van Nuys was abruptly closed, leaving hundreds of students without a school at which to complete their programs. The student’s educational goals and whole way of life was changed in an instant. But it did not take these students long to try and figure out what to do next. A large group of Brightwood’s DMS students approached our admissions department the day of the closure asking for help - and we immediately began working on creative ways we could accommodate these st
Transcranial Sonography Identifies Parkinson’s Earlier
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:

The Physical Therapist Assistant Profession Turns 50
There's cause for Physical Therapist Assistant to Celebrate! 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first physical therapist assistant (PTA) graduates.

The APTA  stated that a half-century for the rise of the PTA from something that seemed like a good idea to a recognized, well-established, and in-demand profession integral to health care represents a remarkably short ascendance. Today, it's hard to imagine the delivery of physical t
Love is in the Air
Valentine’s day is celebrated every year. But do you know where Valentine’s day came from? How it became so popular? Was it always about love and good feelings?

There are two theories about the origin of Valentine's Day. According to History.com one is that the day derives from Lupercalia, a raucous Roman festival on February 15th where men stripped naked and spanked young maidens in the hopes of upping their fertility.

The second theory is that while the Roman Emperor Claudius II was trying to bols

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Post Primary Certification

Casa Loma College’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging Post Primary Advanced Professional Development Course is offered though our Lifelong Learning Department.

The MRI Post Primary Certification Course is intended for the imaging technologist cross-training into MRI and for those technologists who wish to become more marketable by obtaining a credential in an additional modality. The course prepares the student for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) post primary certification examination in MRI.

The course is approved by ASRT for 44 Cat A CE credits and can be used towards the 16-hours Structured Education requirements set forth by ARRT.

Description
This 16-week course provides a comprehensive overview of the content areas as outlined in the ARRT content specifications for the post-primary MRI exam. Core topics include but are not limited to physical principles of image formation, patient interactions and safety, imaging procedures, cross sectional anatomy, and data acquisition and image processing. 

Students must also document performance of a minimum of 125 repetitions of magnetic resonance imaging procedures according to ARRT criteria. Procedures must be documented and verified by an ARRT certified and registered technologist supervisor or licensed physician.

Students must find and secure their own clinical site.
So that MRI technologists can prepare and administer contrast agents to obtain some images, a VENIPUCNTURE component is included at an additional cost.

Scheduling
For convenience of the working technologist, this on-campus course is scheduled only four-hours, one evening per week for 16-weeks. Additional time is required to complete clinical competencies; however, the length of time is dependent on the students scheduling of clinical hours. 

Requirements
Applicants must be certified and registered in a supporting category by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT), Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB), or the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS). Proof of registry is required. 

Applicants must possess an associate degree or higher
