"It's not just 3D magnetic resonance. Everyone in the country does that. Everyone converts their images to 3D. It's the way it's acquired, the way it's built---it's instantaneous---and the way its' presented to the physician that makes it unique."

Healthcare Statistics, Research, and Imaging Trends
U.S. healthcare spending grew to reach $3.5 Trillion in 2017 according to an analysis from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The global diagnostic imaging market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2016 to 2021 to reach USD 36.43 Billion by 2021.
Factors such as increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, rapid growth in the geriatric population, growing government investments for modernization of imaging facilities, rising number of private imaging centers (especially in emerging countries), technological advancements in diagnostic imaging modalities, and the improving healthcare infrastructure in emerging markets and availability of low-cost, technologically advanced imaging systems with applications in multiple fields are driving the growth of this market.
Federal Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements account for a significant portion of (imaging) industry revenue and can reduce the cost of services to certain patients, stimulating greater demand from these patients. Overall, federal funding for Medicare and Medicaid is expected to increase during 2018 and beyond, but healthcare reform-related, cost-cutting efforts may nonetheless pose a potential threat to funding for diagnostic imaging.
Physicians rely on diagnostic testing to help identify risk for a disease and aid in the choice of therapeutic regimen. As the level of spending on health in the United States increases, it will positively affect expenditure on industry services. Health expenditure in the United States is expected to increase during 2018 and beyond, representing a potential opportunity for the industry.
95% of X-Ray exams today are diagnostically inconclusive.
Gadolinium (contrast used in many MRI exams) has become a hot topic, including some recent class action lawsuits. With questions about its cost-effectiveness and the news that gadolinium has been found deposited in the brain and in other body tissues, debate has ensued about how to image wisely.
Ultrasound has several limitations and challenges: the quality of the results depends to a large extent on the skill of the technologist or doctor operating the transducer, it cannot differentiate cancerous tissue from non-cancerous tissue, is unable to detect micro-calcifications in the breast, and good images are harder to get in people who are obese.
Some studies have shown that ionizing radiation from CT scans may lead to increased, potential future occurrence of cancers, particularly in children.
WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT than all other MRI Imaging
Our advanced 3D MRI visualizations can be represented in novel holographic form.
This can collectively discriminate and highlight areas of interest within the original MRI acquisition protocol.
Therefore, a full spectrum visualization of our focal target becomes easily reconfigured to better local specific pathology.
Secondly, our proprietary, innovative imaging technique called "QuikLook MRI" brings a more efficient method of finding pathology in amazingly short timeframes.
The typical exam in under 5 minutes, some as short as 30 seconds. A QuikLook MRI scan offers a much more complete diagnostic solution to the consumer, a competitive advantage that can be passed along to the consumer, saving them time and expense.
This allows the images to be easily referred to insurance companies and doctors that could benefit the patient for follow-on imaging.
This imaging innovation is especially productive in whole body and bilateral MSK scanning.
QuikLook unlocks the MRI scanner's full potential . The use of our 1.5T, wide bore scanning platform results in much more complete and comfortable patient experience.
QuikLook Multiple Phase Strategy:
Data Acquisition 1-5 minutes
Delivering Pathology (QuikLook equals 10 - 30 seconds)
Delivering Product via a secure web portal / phone app - The 3D volume is rendered and is securely provided to the customer via a common browser. In the advanced format, our product demonstrates a sub-millimeter, isotropic, 3D capability that further highlights pathology.
Delivering Radiology Read This Medical Radiology report commonly called the "Read", can be delivered directly to the patient and/or medical professional. A confirmation of the pathology can be shared with the entire network.
QuikLook secure web portal and phone app will provide the full customer experience. It will provide the QuikLook Customer:
A Private Login to allow them to schedule their scan(s) at their convenience
Patient can access their scans, when necessary, in a 3D movie loop
All data with be archived as required by state regulations
MRI is unparalleled in its sophistication and flexibility as a diagnostic imaging tool.
MRI has an ultra sensitivity in detecting subtle differences relating to structural and functional human anatomy.
It is far superior to X-Ray and CT in soft tissue evaluation and does not bombard patients with dangerous radiation OR contrast.
Clinical MRI is grossly underutilized, often programmed to under-perform.
WE ARE CHANGING THAT PARADIGM!
BETTER FASTER SAFER CHEAPER
There is an urgent need to alleviate the future, massive backlog for diagnostic imaging procedures created by the Affordable Care Act commonly referred to as "ObamaCare".
These insurance plans are becoming an increasing burden to consumers with high deductibles & co-pays, and insurers denying coverage can impact patient access to sophisticated diagnostics.

CHANGING THE STANDARD OF CARE WILL REVOLUTIONIZE THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY
Lee Schiel, Founder of MRI First LLC and Early Response Imaging, Inc.
"What is generally not known about MRI is that its acquisition protocols allow for complete soft tissue mapping of human bio systems in very short time-frames AND with very high 3 and 4D acuity.
When you get a 'normal' MRI, they only get a two percent sampling of your body. That's not enough to show pathology.
To accommodate high population throughput without straining the payer systems in place today, a scalable MRI model must identify pathology in the shortest possible time frame, minimizing patient discomfort and anxiety.
It is quite feasible that favorable pricing for MRI screenings could redefine diagnostic referral patterns and single-handedly mitigate the high cost of reactive medical diagnostic models in use today."
We will soon be opening our first company-owned diagnostic center in the greater Austin, TX area.
