With the loss of both of his parents to cancer at a young age, our CEO and founder, Tom Graham, was afraid that he would be cancer’s next victim. Taking control of his life, Tom decided to have a full-body scan done, and thankfully the results were unremarkable, meaning no early signs of Heart disease or cancer in his body or major organs.
But what if it was too late?
What if Tom took the full-body scan and the results were not unremarkable?
What if the results came back positive for cancer or heart disease?
We are completely unaware of what goes on in our bodies until it’s often too late mainly due to:
- A lack of education or awareness that something is lurking in our bodies
- An expensive healthcare system that prevents us from taking screenings often
Tom realized that there needed to be a way to detect the two deadly diseases as early as possible to help disrupt this deadly system.
It was time for a change.
Tom founded Life Imaging, and today we’re on a mission to educate and provide an affordable early detection system for the two deadliest diseases known to humanity— heart disease and cancer.
Preventative Care in The United States is Subpar
There is nothing we fear more in life than death.
Whether from old age or a freak accident, a long battle with a disease, or even suicide. Death is an event that has a significant impact on families, communities, and even nations. One thing holds in every scenario--death is always a challenging experience.
Two of the largest causes of death are:
- 1,600,000 people suffer a heart attack every year
- 50% of the men and 64% of the women who die suddenly of coronary artery disease had no prior symptoms!
- In 2012, $411 Billion was spent on coronary heart disease, a large portion paid by consumers.
- Approximately 48% of all Americans will suffer some degree of coronary artery disease.
- For 150,000 people, the first sign of heart disease will be their fatal heart attack.
- In 2018, an estimated 1,735,350 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the United States, and 609,640 people will die from the disease.
- In 2016, there were an estimated 15.5 million cancer survivors in the United States. The number of cancer survivors is expected to increase to 20.3 million by 2026
- Approximately 38.4% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes.
- In 2017, an estimated 15,270 children and adolescents ages 0 to 19 were diagnosed with cancer, and 1,790 died of the disease.
- Estimated national expenditures for cancer care in the United States in 2017 were $147.3 billion.
But what if we told you some of these deaths are preventable, and that prevention is also affordable for everyone.
Would you believe us?
Probably not and for good reason.
The US is embroiled in a complicated and expensive health care system that more often than not serves the business needs more than the patients. Any research or testing of medicine is heavily inflated, which leaves millions of people in the dark about the underlying health issues they may be having simply due to cost.
This results in too many people dying from heart disease, cancer, and other fatal diseases that can often be detected early by using groundbreaking and straightforward CT technologies.

Modern Methods to Save Lives, Affordably
Just like the rest of the world, Life Imaging has seen the loss of life first hand. Ultimately it’s inspired us to reduce preventable deaths in the US by developing an affordable solution that will help solve our national heart disease and cancer crisis.
Our FDA-approved EBTC scanners can easily detect many deadly diseases before a patient shows any symptoms and even sometimes decades ahead, using only 10% of a standard CT scanner’s radiation.
Full body scans can cost thousands of dollars through insurance and other medical providers, and it’s unlikely your doctor would even give you a script for a full-body scan, to begin with.
Our packages are just a few hundred dollars a scan, making our body scans incredibly affordable and accessible for many people!
Our Core Values Drive Everything We do at Life Imaging
We live and breathe by our values in a way that allows us to focus on impacting your life by providing excellent service and the tools to take control of cancer and heart disease before it takes control of you.
In our CEO’s words, “We need to get ahead of heart disease and cancer. If we could’ve used this technology in this way when it was invented over 20 years ago, millions would’ve been saved.”
We take the guesswork out of preventative care.
Patients come in to learn about our process and get scanned, and we provide them with an easy-to-read detailed report. Depending on the report, we will transfer the information to their doctor to help them set up the next steps if needed.
For example, if a patient shows a high calcium score of the heart, we will forward that information to their doctor. The doctor will then tell them they need to do x, y, and z, and we can set a plan for doing annual screenings to see any improvements in our annual preferred care program.
Heart disease is reversible in most cases. We make the process as smooth and affordable as possible.
