A smiling face is the mirror of our body and can heal sick patients” – Last March I came here for check-up. I was then referred to Dr. Espinosa so I went to his clinic. He sent me back here for EEG. The staff downstairs at the front office did the EEG for me right away so I had the time to go back to Dr. Espinosa who interpreted the result. It was done so fast that we had the time to go back to Ilocos that same day. I thank the staff very much. To Lorma as a whole, thank you so much and may God bless you all. All the staff and employees of Lorma Hospital are very friendly. I’m very glad to see their smiling faces every morning. Keep up your good work!!!

“I have been supplied with newspapers everyday. I had been to big and modern hospital in Manila, and it’s only here that we are given newspaper.  Nursing personnel – prompt in doing things for patients’ comfort.  Very good big, and clean trash cans." 
- From Exec. Suite E

“My thanks to Dr. Gamboa and MCO in the ER who gave a helping hand during my life and death situation. I can’t forget all of you who gave me my second life and of course to our beloved God Almighty who used your hospital to help me survive. I was so satisfied. In behalf of my small kids, husband and my relatives, thank you very much! God bles you all!” – From 2A (Ward)

Lorma hospital has improved a lot when it comes to services. The personnel are so caring and they always offer a friendly smile. I am happy to see some interns who were my former students in high school. They are so cheerful and fresh looking which help the patients recover fast. LORMA EXCELLENT! – From Rm. 222

Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI is one of the most advanced diagnostic tools available to physicians. MRI is used to exam the brain, bones, joints, muscles, heart and blood vessels using a strong magnet and radio waves. MRI is a painless procedure that uses no radiation to produce a computer image.

Common Indications for MRI include: Brain - Multiple Sclerosis, brain tumours, pituitary adenoma, epilepsy, developmental abnormalities, acoustic neuroma, ischaemia. Spine - disc protrusion, sciatica, metastasis, cord/nerve lesions, syrinx, trauma Musculoskeletal - injuries and disease affecting bone, tendons, ligaments, cartilage or bone marrow, tumor, avascular necrosis. Abdomen - cholangiography, tumours of pancreas, prostate, liver and adrenal glands. Pelvis - prostatic and uterine tumours.








The MRI scanner consists of a large magnet. A coil is placed around the area of the body to be examined which acts as an antenna for the radio waves. The patient lies on a table that slides into the magnet at the start of the scan. During the scan, slight knocking noises are heard due to rapid switching of magnetic fields. Scan times vary between approximately 20 minutes and 50 minutes. An injection may sometimes be required towards the end of the scan.










What to Expect

A technologist will take you into the MRI room and make you comfortable on the exam table. The table will move into the cylindrical magnet where you will be positioned throughout the test - usually between 25 to 45 minutes. The part of your body that is being studied will be in the center of the magnet. Throughout the test you will be in constant contact with the technologist through a microphone and viewing window.

A radiologist will review your MIR image and forward the findings to your physician, who will go over them with you.

We are pleased to answer any questions you may have. For information on any diagnostic service or to schedule an appointment, please give us a call.
