Dr. Katherine Iscoe is the Co-Founder and CEO of Advanced Human Imaging.  AHI has developed image processing technology for the body, face, and skin along with health-related risk assessment models for their individual healthcare partners. The analysis of these images can identify early warning signs for a wide range of diseases, including determining if a mole on the skin is benign or potentially cancerous.

Katherine explains, "It's big technology in a very small space, that's for sure. We have developed an on-device capturing technology, where we use the phone's camera to capture images of the human body, or it could be the face. And then we take the information that's stored within those images."

"Often, we look at a photograph, and we just think, "That's very pretty." Still, there's so much data within those images, and we use that data to process that information within the device. So that's quite important because the images never leave the device."

"The output of this processing of data is incredibly accurate results. The data can be used to provide biometrics, which is just this fancy word for measurements of the human body. So these could be everything from your waist or your hip circumference, but the combination of these data points can also be used for health risk markers, such as the relationship between your waist and hip. We know that central adiposity is a very strong marker for future metabolic risk, such as syndrome X."
