MCM is a DOH-accredited Level 3 hospital in Muntinlupa city with a 100-bed capacity.
MCM is situated at Putatan, Muntinlupa, Metro Manila and has been in service since 1990 when a group of doctors founded the institution and firstly named it as Muntinlupa Polymedic Inc. Below is a map of the hospital:

In many cases, MRI can give out different information about structures in the body than can be seen with an X-ray, ultrasound, or computed tomography (CT) scan. MRI can also show problems that cannot be seen with other imaging methods. (Lam, 2017)

An MRI scan uses a large magnet, radio waves, and a computer to create a detailed cross-sectional image of the patient's internal organs and structures. The scanner itself typically resembles a large tube with a table in the middle, allowing the patient to slide into the tunnel. An MRI scan differs from CT scans and X-rays because it does not use ionizing radiation that can be potentially harmful to a patient. (Lam, 2017)
MRI is commonly used to diagnose injuries related to sports, as well as work-related disorders strain, vibration, or forceful impact. Using these magnetic resonance images, doctors can locate and identify the cause of pain, swelling or bleeding in the tissues in and around joints and bones. The images allow doctors to clearly see even very small tears and injuries in tendons, ligaments and muscles, and even some fractures that cannot be seen on x-rays.
