INVEST IN KONING TODAY!
Koning Health manufactures an FDA-approved diagnostic breast CT device already being used in clinics around the world. Our 3D imaging requires no painful compression and provides highly accurate detection of Stage 0 and 1 cancers, especially in patients with small or dense breasts or implants where mammograms often cannot detect small tumors.
The Koning Breast CT (KBCT) is the first of its kind to be in-market. We believe we have the potential to save millions of lives as the comfort of our procedure encourages more frequent imaging and the accuracy of our technology detects cancer before it spreads.
There are over 83 million women in the U.S. who are 40 years and older (Source). However, according to the MQSA (Mammography Quality Standards Act Program), only 40 million women were reported to get their annual mammogram last year (Source). This makes for over 50% non-compliance rate in regards to women who receive their annual breast exam.
Breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in women in the U.S. and the second leading cause of cancer death in American women. With breast detection Stages 0 or 1, there is a 99% 5-year survival rate. However, with Stage 4 detection, that number drops to 22%.
Mammograms are a lifesaving procedure, however, the limitations of 2D imaging cause mammograms to fail to detect up to 30% of early stage breast cancers, a number that rises to 70% for women with dense breasts.

The KBCT delivers high contrast 3D breast imaging without the need for painful compression. In a rapid 7-second exposure with the patient in a comfortable prone position, the KBCT takes a 360-degree scan, allowing for the evaluation of breast tissue from all angles. Our technology is able to detect Stage 0 and 1 tumors as small as 2 millimeters and calcifications as small as 2 microns, making early detection easier than ever.
Dr. Richard Ha, a prominent Breast MRI specialist familiar with Breast CT has stated: Mammography detects on average 3 to 4 breast cancers per thousand while DBT is said to detect 4 to 5 per thousand. Multiple publications have shown Breast MRI sensitivity and specificity increases the detection rate up to 20 to 24 per thousand. Dr. Ha predicts Breast CT with contrast will be on par with Breast MRI detection rates. Breast CT introduces compression free, low dose and true 3-dimensional breast imaging and unlike Breast MRI, Breast CT can visualize calcifications, often an early indicator of disease (Dr. Richard Ha - Columbia University Irving Medical Center).
Currently, we sell our devices to clinics and hospitals around the world, and we also provide a fee-for-scan option to clinics that cannot afford the whole price upfront. As we grow, we plan to build our own “Koning Clinics” managed by partner doctors so our technology can be made available to patients on as great a scale as possible.
Koning is ushering in a new business model that caters to retail healthcare with Koning Clinics in major metropolitan areas. Once the pilot program is complete, we plan to expand through the use of retail partners like CVS, Walgreens, etc.
The US market for breast imaging is preparing for rapid expansion, with 6 dedicated CT CPT codes approved as of May 2020 providing reimbursements to private and public payers. These dedicated breast CT CPT codes demonstrate a growing demand in the industry for breast CT.
Since our launch, we have hit a number of major milestones:
As Koning grows and expands not only into more hospitals, but also into family clinics around the country, we will be partnering with DocPanel, the world’s first on-demand, pay-as-you-go, contract-free service offering radiological reads, second opinions, educational consults, and diagnoses from high-caliber subspecialty radiologists at prestigious academic hospitals. This partnership is key to Koning’s expansion and will alleviate any issues that might have arisen.
Koning is partnering with Alpha Medical Equipment Company, an exclusive distributor and service provider of medical diagnostic imaging equipment throughout the New York, New Jersey, and Northeastern Pennsylvania areas.
Koning is the only independent and dedicated breast CT company, with compelling advantages over existing modalities. Our competition is focused on making
incremental improvements in CT, MRI, X-ray tomosynthesis and ultrasound, whereas we use novel technology to get a clearer picture of each patient. Given the historical precedent set by DBT, we believe that KBCT will soon dominate the medical landscape for breast imaging.
Koning Breast CT is raising the standards for breast cancer diagnosis and treatment across the globe. Our mission is to save millions of lives through early detection and increased compliance due with our painless imaging.
In an industry experiencing rapid expansion, we have a product that dramatically improves imaging and diagnostic capabilities protected by 120 patents and already
in-market. Join us as we provide our lifesaving technology to patients everywhere.
At Koning Health, we designed a breast-only CT scanner for highly accurate early detection of breast cancer without the uncomfortable compression of mammograms. Our highly detailed 3D imaging aims to detect cancer at its earliest stages, preventing the need for tedious recovery processes and potentially saving the lives of millions.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
