This is a very individual question. The smallest injuries can be visualized with MRI, but often have no therapeutic consequence - you only know what was injured. However, if you cannot go about your daily routine and/or sporting activities, then it would be advisable to have an MRI scan of the affected area of your body. With the diagnosis at hand, you can plan the next steps with your treating physician.
Please use our appointment form after you have created your patient file. Alternatively, you can book your MRI appointment online or call our MRI centers directly. To do so, look at the MRI center near you: Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Hanover, Cologne and Munich. Soon Dortmund and Mönchengladbach will follow.
When your MRI scan is done, you can go home. We will analyze your images and make the diagnosis. Since you have already made an appointment with us to discuss your findings via video conference, we will discuss them together. You will find the final written report (as a PDF file) in your patient area. If you were examined at Tiamana without a patient file, we will send you your results by e-mail.
The usual way is to go to your primary care physician and/or orthopedic surgeon with your symptoms. During the physical exam, they will decide if you need an MRI. Some colleagues require an MRI of the body area so that they can select the right therapy for you more quickly - so in such a case it makes sense to have the MRI done directly.
Please clarify such a procedure with your health insurance - some insurers stipulate that you first talk to your family doctor - only then do they cover 100% of the costs for the MRI.
Some injuries should be checked in a follow up examination so that the treatment can be adjusted if necessary, or a completely different therapy can be chosen. We will include such an exam in our written report as a recommendation, if necessary.
Since the MRI is not harmful to the body, you can also ask for an MRI checkup on your own. We will then compare the two examinations and tell you if there is any deterioration or improvement.
Currently we work with private patients and self-pay patients. Our fees are based on the GOÄ (scale of fees for physicians) in Germany. These fees are covered by all private health insurances.
Do you have a statutory health insurance? Please contact your health insurance company before the examination so that you can avoid unpleasant surprises. You can contact us if you are unsure what to do next.
The MRI is a 100% radiation-free machine and harmless to the body. The MRI is a large and powerful magnet together with very complex hardware that can detect the smallest differences in the magnetic field of the individual molecules in the body and thus calculate images of them.
Most people can be examined in an MRI without any problems. It is important for us to know if there are any foreign bodies (implants, splinters after accidents, etc.) in your body. Some of these could be a contraindication to an MRI scan - usually if they are metallic and magnetic. It is also possible that you are not enthusiastic about lying in the "tube". This will cause you to be restless and your images will end up blurred.
Please read the detailed text about this in the Help Center.
Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
The greatest advantages are the accurate visualisation of soft tissue, the high contrasts between individual structures and the local resolution, combined with the possibility of producing the images without X-rays in any spatial plane.
This means that you can repeat an MRI as many times as necessary without worrying about radiation.
Tiamana is an innovative and unique service provider focused on active people and adventurers. Our mission is to improve medical care for action sports. We want to be the medical partner of this special community for the following reasons: we are also part of it, we are on the same wavelength and we burn for the same passion.
We love the same sports and work hard to provide you with a unique, respectful and authentic experience during your time of injury. It is very important to us to support you in your passion so you can enjoy it for as long as possible.
An important part of this is to reduce the time you need during the injury break by optimising processes and avoiding unnecessary time loss such as long appointment waiting times.
The founder of Tiamana - Milen Golchev, MD, is a radiology specialist with a focus on musculoskeletal radiology. He has over 10 years of professional experience. It is a matter of course for him to regularly participate in further expert training. Milen is a founding member of one of the most successful societies for musculoskeletal education in radiology - MSK-Wissen.de.
The close cooperation with other experts gives him access to an established network of specialists who allow for a further opinion in rare and challenging cases.
A similar level of training is considered a minimum requirement for all other radiologists at Tiamana - because high quality and patient satisfaction are extremely important to us!
Although our focus is on adventurers / action sports and working with these athletes to minimize the occurrence of injuries, we would be very happy to assist you in the event of an injury. Just get in touch, or schedule an MRI appointment near you.
Our goal is to support the adventurer / action sports community as a whole by using all of our skills to provide high quality medical imaging. If you are a professional athlete, check out our Family Program.
We love animals, we love nature and we believe that renewable energy is the future. For these reasons we support non-profit organizations like WWF, 1% for The Planet and work hard to minimize our (and your) carbon footprint. Learn more about sustainability.
We specialise in musculoskeletal radiology, but if you have other conditions such as tumours, chronic inflammatory diseases or similar, get in touch - we'll do our best to recommend an experienced specialist in the field.
Our fluffy friends are not particularly thrilled with the sounds in the MRI. Since we couldn't find headphones in the size, they have to support us from home. Our exam centers are 100% cat hair free! You can check out the meows on the team page. Meow.
We live in a world where growth and profit have long since taken over. At Tiamana, we support team ideas even if they are not the best choice from a business perspective. We believe that it makes sense to invest in things that matter to us and make the world a better place. You can check out the ethics section on our website where we go into detail about working hours, vacation time, etc.
Sometimes I ask myself, what is a friend? And then I say: A friend is someone with whom you can share the last biscuit.
