About ‘The Hercules Project’

The Hercules Project is a large study observing up to 100,000 adults aged 18 or older in the U.S. using whole body MRI (WB-MRI) scans over the next 10 years. Participants will be recruited from multiple clinical sites, they'll undergo MRI scans using specialized equipment. Radiologists will assess the images and share results with healthcare providers. Follow-up calls will be made after the initial scan to gather diagnostic outcomes. Optional follow-up scans may occur at 24 and 36 months. Data will be analyzed for sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value. For those with prior diagnoses, comparisons will be made between MRI findings and known conditions. The study aims to evaluate MRI's predictive power for future health issues, considering various factors.
