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.

CLC student 1710A, MRI Graduate Class of 2019

We enter the classroom, bright eyed and full of eagerness to learn of the explorations of our future chosen careers. While we sit comfortably, (for the most part), in our well-lit educational environment, notebooks blank and our pens waiting to start filling the pages with unknown and new information. The instructor really doesn’t share with you the reality, the fears, and the hard work that goes into
Resilience! What Is It? And How Can You Get Some
by Stephanie Shelburne, Ph.D.

The word RESILIENCE has become quite the buzzword in current media and marketing. Terms and concepts related to the idea of being resilient seem to pack quite a bit of value-added to products and services that claim to make you more resilient.

Clearly, as a public, we love the word and we love the idea of being resilient but what does it really mean?

Resilience is much more than just a buzzword. It’s also more than being prepared for adversity, an
LEARN TO FALL SO YOU CAN FLY
Written by Kari Allen-Hammer, Ph.D.

Stop resisting the inevitable and prepare yourself properly.

Our lives have abruptly and drastically shifted. For some, this means the ground is shuffling beneath you now and you have to alter your positioning to avoid falling.

For others, you may get a much-needed respite from the demands of an over-scheduled, stretched-too-thin lifestyle, but the stuckness of inactivity is beginning to set in.

We’re in the midst of a significant
Conversations
Can You Think of The Last Time You Were in A Conversation Where You Felt Like You Just Weren't Being Heard or Understood?
Have you ever finished a conversation and realized that you still had a ton of questions or comments and are actually not really sure what the end result of the conversation was? Or for that matter, do certain conversations leave you completely drained and feeling sort of spacey?

These are all signs that what’s happening isn’t really communication in the
When Passion & Skills Don’t Match
For many students, finding a career path is as easy as asking a simple question.

“What’s your passion?”

These students, having a passion that matches their skill set with reality aligning ever so perfectly, answer effortlessly. “Well, I’ve always been passionate about helping children, I love science and everyone in my family is a doctor, so I definitely want to pursue that field. I want to be a pediatrician. In fact, I have since I w

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The demand for excellent medical imaging professionals is continuing to increase throughout the State of California and the United States. Come train with Casa Loma College and watch as you become a highly qualified MRI Technologist!

As part of the health care team, MRI Technologists perform diagnostic medical examinations using powerful magnets, radio waves, and a computer to make detailed pictures inside your body. An MRI can help a doctor diagnose a disease or injury. MRI’s can be done on different parts of the body. For instance an MRI of the brain and spinal cord looks for blood vessel damage, brain injury, cancer, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries and strokes; an MRI of the heart and blood vessels looks for blocked blood vessels, heart disease, damage caused by heart attack and problems with the structure of the heart; an MRI of the bones and joints looks for bone infections, cancer, joint damage and disc problem in the spine; and an MRI can also check the health of breasts, liver, kidneys, pancreas and many other areas and organs of the body.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Program

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging Program at Casa Loma College offers an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Magnetic Resonance Imaging. This comprehensive 22 month program is accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) and approved by the American Registry of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologists and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists for MRI Primary Pathway Certification. The program provides graduates with the necessary eligibility requirements to qualify for examination by the American Registry of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologists (ARMRIT) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) MRI Primary Pathway Certification and Registration.

The courses include general education curriculum, MR courses, and clinical practicum courses. A complete outline of required courses is available in the Casa Loma College Catalog. Topics included in the MR courses and clinical practicum courses include:

  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • MR Physics and Instrumentation
  • Cross Sectional Anatomy
  • MR Imaging and Procedures
  • Patient Care and Management

Students receive in-class instruction, online instruction, laboratory experience, and clinical practicum experience. The MR and clinical practicum courses encompass six consecutive semesters and require the student to participate in courses up to 40 hours per week. Clinical practicum experience is obtained in a variety of health care facilities.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply for national certification examinations of the American Registry of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologists (ARMRIT) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) MRI Primary Pathway Certification and Registration.

ARMRIT: To obtain MRI Certification, candidates must be a graduate of an approved MRI Program. You can learn more about the requirements by visiting MRI Candidate Handbook.

ARRT: To obtain the ARRT Credential, you must meet three requirements, education, ethics and examination. You can learn more about the requirements for certification through ARRT by visiting ARRT MRI Requirements.

THE ROLE OF THE MRI TECHNOLOGIST
The MRI Technologist performs various diagnostic procedures under the supervision of a licensed physician and works closely with patients to provide instruction and quality care while performing diagnostic procedures. These procedures are quite varied and provide images of virtually all parts of the anatomy.

MRI is unique in the field of diagnostic imaging because of the manner in which images are obtained. The patient is positioned within a powerful magnetic field and radio frequency signals are utilized to create 3-D images of the patient’s internal structures. This is accomplished without the use of ionizing radiation. Those images are read by radiologists, who give the reports to patients’ physicians to help diagnose conditions that may not be possible with other imaging methods. MRI is a field with direct patient contact.
