Magnetic Resonance Imaging Post Primary Certification
Casa Loma College’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging Post Primary Advanced Professional Development Course is offered though our Lifelong Learning Department.
This program is coming February 2019!
Our advanced professional development course in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR) is for those technologists who wish to become more marketable by obtaining a credential in an additional modality.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a specialized imaging modality that utilizes computer technology in conjunction with magnetic fields and radio frequency signals to obtain sectional images in any body plane. An MRI Technologist is responsible for taking detailed images of the internal body by using the procedure of magnetic resonance imaging. These images are obtained by using radio waves and can be transferred into three-dimensional images for the accurate and complete diagnosis of the patient’s condition. Magnetic resonance imaging is used to detect problems in the body areas like joints, chest, brain, lungs and spinal cord.
The program is approved by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) for 44.5 Category A CEU.
The program consists of on-campus didactic courses as well as clinical education for the student. The program is designed to accommodate working technologists and allows them to continue in their full-time working positions while completing the course work.
All courses will count toward the ARRT required Continuing Education Units (CEU) to maintain certification.

What People are Saying
I am currently an active student in the DMS evening program. The instructors, Mr. Dhillon and Dr. Arthur, are fantastic, extremely knowledgeable, and always willing to help their students improve and succeed whether in lab or lecture class. You do learn a lot within the 2 year program and are expected to know all the information in order to pass the exams so expect to make time to study your books and especially (most importantly) learning how to scan! Practice is key!
Aside from the program, the school staff are all very friendly and willing to help out with anything you need! All in all, it's really up to the student to make use of their time here and take advantage of the resources offered at CLC. My youngest brother graduated from Casa Loma College and currently has a great job so I know it's within my reach to succeed in my future career.
I am a recent graduate of Casa Loma's Physical Therapist Assistant Program. The PTA program here is top notch. The faculty and staff really care about you and want you to succeed. I got accepted into 2 PTA programs and I chose this one after having my interview and seeing how passionate they were about Physical Therapy and teaching. I am so glad that I chose this program over the other. You get personalized teaching throughout the program because of the low student to teacher ratio. I felt that this helped me refine my skills to succeed.
The faculty also gets you prepared for your clinical rotations. My Clinical Instructors said that our school did a really good job preparing me for my rotation and that Casa Loma has a good reputation for PTA's. I was able to perform at a high level as a PTA during my rotation thanks to the faculty.
I feel more than ready to succeed as a PTA after my schooling here. I was able to pass my boards on my first try and I was able to get a job immediately after I graduated. I have nothing but great things to say about this program! I absolutely loved it here!!!
I started to inquire from this institution doing my best to get into the PTA program, staff members were very friendly and accomodating. I did my requirements with very little hope because of my financial situation, but the administration knew I really wanted to do this and I got accepted as a student after going through all the tests, procedures, and interviews. Financial department did what they can to pull out all the necessary resources for me to approved for student loans, professors are very adept and knowledgeable in their field of expertise as well. After graduating, they worked with the students nonstop through grueling long review classes before taking the boards to ensure students will do exceptionally well.
Long story short, I started with nothing... I graduated, passed my boards, became a licensed profession. I am currently doing Home Health and I couldn't be any happier. I owe my success to each and everyone from this prestigious institution.
