Today, I’m joined by Jeffrey Kaditz, founder & CEO of Q Bio, a company democratizing personalized preventative health with streamlined whole-body MRIs and digital twin technology.
An engineer and serial entrepreneur, Jeffrey’s tackled everything from fintech to mobile gaming. Now, he’s revolutionizing healthcare at Q Bio, building a platform that promises to help doctors detect disease and diagnose root causes early.
In this episode, we discuss the company’s clinical digital twin technology. Plus, Jeffrey shares his vision for making the Star Trek Medbay a reality and talks us through an automated physical exam of the future.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why Q Bio is more than an elective whole-body MRI company
