(HLI), the genomics-based, health intelligence company, today announced a pilot program, Health Nucleus X (HNX) as part of the company's Health Nucleus clinical research program, that offers individuals and their physicians proactive access to genomics and advanced MRI giving rapid insights into their health.
HNX focuses on core testing areas of whole genome sequencing and advanced whole body, 3T, non-contrast MRI and takes about three hours. The pilot is being offered in the Health Nucleus facility in La Jolla, California from May 1 through June 30, 2017 for an introductory price of $7,500. The company expects to open free standing HNX facilities in other cities.
The company also offers its more comprehensive Health Nucleus Platinum program which is a full eight-hour day of health testing that includes the two modalities from HNX along with others such as CT scans, echocardiogram, EKG, and a more complete battery of metabolic and lab testing. To date 570 people have participated in the HN Platinum experience with nearly 40% having had significant findings which were found at an early stage. Health Nucleus and HNX both provide a new approach to provide clients with personalized health insights into cancer, neurological, metabolic and cardiovascular disease risk.
