'Win an MRI' contest winner provides in-house MR exams with the MAGNETOM ESSENZA

LOCKPORT, N.Y., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- After much anticipation and an outpouring of community support during last year's "Win an MRI" contest, an excited crowd of friends, employees and patrons of Lockport Memorial Hospital in Lockport, N.Y., gathered in the hospital lobby to hear those words they have been waiting to hear: "It's here!"
