Proactive Body Imaging: A Catalyst for Better Health

With early detection, cancer treatments are up to 7x more successful at stage 1 vs. advanced stages. That’s a massive difference in survivability. Click To Tweet

What if someone gave you a window into your own body?

You could see everything that might potentially plague your health — from the early stages of cancer to back problems caused by sitting at your desk — in black and white.

That’s exactly what Prenuvo provides. This health tech company specializes in proactive whole-body diagnostic imaging, and it’s pioneering the patient-driven early detection of 500+ medical conditions plaguing our society.

Most professionals in the medical system believe in withholding patient information. But I believe we should all have access to our health data. The earlier you can catch and turn around any disease or trajectory, the better. 

Disease precursors often exist many years before symptoms show up. But by the time we’re sick and have a doctor sign off on testing, they’ve already progressed too far for successful treatment outcomes.

These are some reasons why my wife and I recently went for Prenuvo scans. So I was thrilled to speak with Prenuvo founder and CEO Andrew Lacy about the process afterward.
