“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!!!

physician. He listens well to patient’s complaints. He shows happy disposition.
Hope he’ll be a fellow soon.

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