What clients say about me

"I've been without a proper diagnosis for more than 17 years until Prof. Maj Thurner reviewed my old MRIs images, letting found on the basis of a correct diagnosis with images of findings. The opinion was clear and well-founded. The second opinion, even mentioned the differential diagnosis, giving me a clear ready-made answer for my neurologists. It is an arachnoiditis and considered to be very rare disease. I got a clear statement with images, where the findings of arachnoiditis is so clearly demonstrated, that the diagnosis is no longer controversial. Arachnoiditis can cause cauda equina syndrome, what my neurologists had not been able to take into account the lower limb paralysis caused. The second opinion by means of my treatment is directed more quickly on the right road and I will avoid the wrong treatment. I have given my friends in the international community arachnoiditis read the statement and their opinion was that it is really extremely skilled neuro radiologist`s statement. I can therefore recommend you to ask a second opion specifically from Prof. Maj Thurner."

    Prof. Majda Thurnher was a pleasure to deal with. She has helped me understand things regarding my scans a bit better than I understood. I will follow her recommendations and opinion. I would highly recommend Prof. Majda Thurnher to anyone who is looking for an opinion on their scans. There is no doubt she is an expert in her field and I personally am more than grateful to her for her clear and detailed reports.

    Thank You Prof. Thurnher.
