Patent No. 5,188,107

Inventor: Yoshiaki Omura, 800 Riverside Dr., Apt. 8-1, New York, N.Y. 10032

NOTE: This patent represents such high weirdness that we can only present it for your review, at greater than usual length, without further comment...

It is the primary object of the present invention to provide a method which permits imaging of internal organs, localizing exact organ representations at the front and back of the body of a patient and to provide significant diagnostic capabilities.

This object is realized by the present invention which relates to a method of imaging an internal organ of a patient for purposes of medical diagnosis which comprises having the patient place the finger tips of his thumb and any one of his other fingers of one of his hands together to form an O-ring shape.

Determination of which of the other finger is utilized is made by pre-testing for comparability of strength between the patient and the person conducting the test e.g., the tester. For example, the patient will initially form the O-ring shape with his thumb and index finger. The tester will then interlock an O-ring shape comprising his thumb and index finger about the patient's 0ring shape. If the tester and patient are of compatible finger strength then this particular interlocking arrangment of O-ring shape can be used. If the patient and the tester are of compatible strength than the tester should not be able to open the O-ring shape of the patient. If the patient's O-ring opens too easily then the tester should use a weaker finger than his index finger and repeat this pre-testing. If the tester cannot open the O-ring with two or more finger and his thumb, then the patient should use weaker finger in the O-ring shape.

After pre-testing and formation the O-ring shape by the patient, sample tissue of an internal organ corresponding to the organ to be imaged is placed on or in the close vicinity of the patient's other hand by means of a microscopic slide or any conventional means.

The method further includes non-invasive external probing of an internal organ of a patient with a probing device including a rod-shaped instrument while simultaneously attempting to pull apart the O-ring shape by means of placing the tester's thumb and Corresponding remaining finger about the O-ring of the patient and exerting pressure outwardly so that an electromagnetic field of the tissue sample interacts with an-electromagnetic field of any cancerous tissue of the internal organ of the patient being probed and this interaction is detected by the ability to pull apart the O-ring shape.

The person conducting the test places his thumb and one of his other fingers of each of his hands within-the patient's O-ring shape thus forming interlocking O-rings as shown in FIGS. 1-3. The electromagnetic field produced by the tissue will interact with the electromagnetic field of organ being imaged and this interaction would be detected by the ability to pull the thumb and index fingers of the patient apart thereby opening the O-ring shape....

A different embodiment would involve using a light source or light beam with a wave length longer than a green color i.e. 434 millimicrons. Thus light sources such as yellow, red or infrared would be usable. It would also be possible to use a laser beam or any white light. A light beam must have a small diameter of 1 mm or less for accuracy...

A further application of the bi-digital O-ring test is that it can also be used to detect a particular type of malignant tumor including cancer within an internal organ of the patient. The method involves placing a sample of a pure cancerous or any other malignant tissue on the patient's hand and testing the organ to be diagnosed by any of the probing means mentioned above and performing the bi-digital O-ring test in the above-described manner. If the patient has a particular type of cancer that is the same type as that of the sample tissue in his hand, then the O-ring technique will cause his thumb and finger to be parted and accordingly the cancerous area can be imaged. By having a set (kit) of all the commonly occurring major malignant tissue samples of different internal organs and testing the response of each of these malignant tissue samples as a form of microscopic slide type of one can routinely and quickly examine whether the patient has one or more type of malignant tumors of any internal organ.

Similarly toxicities or allergies can be tested for by depositing substances to which the patient may exhibit reaction to such as drugs, foods and drinks including aspirin, penicillin, milk products and certain vegetables. A sample of the substance is deposited in the patient's hand, the internal organ to be tested is probed and the bi-digital O-ring test is again performed.

Further it is possible to test for the effect of drugs on a patient's existing conditions. A sample of the drug ran be deposited in the patient's hand and the internal organ in question can be stimulated to see whether the drug has a good or bad effect on the patient. For example aspirin is known to produce microhemorrhage on the mucus membranes of the stomach and such a toxic effect can be tested for by probing the stomach area with probing means. It is important to note that this method can be employed to determine the optimal or toxic dosage of the drug sample necessary to effect the patent either beneficially or adversely.

Similarly certain patients are too weak to be tested such as cancer patients and it becomes difficult to test their conditions as the O-ring shape will open easily and it will be difficult to detect a particular type of cancer or bacteria depending on what is being tested for in that patient. It is therefore a further feature of the method of the present invention that a third person be used who is first pretested with the bi-digital O-ring test. The third person is connected by electrically conductive material to the patient by means of a conductor being placed between the body surface above the internal organ of the patient to be tested and the third person. The bi-digital O-ring is then tested and performed on the third person. This is extremely effective not only for weakened adult patients but also for children or infants as well as for animals where it is not practical to directly apply the methodology of the present invention due to extreme weakness or inability to communicate with these test subjects.

An approximate scale has been worked out for testing the degree of weakness in the patient by means of the bi-digital O-ring test. If the O-ring shape formed by the patient's thumb and finger is opened to the maximum possible width during the bi-digital O-ring test then a number of minus 4 is assigned to it indicating extreme weakness. If the patient's thumb and finger form the O-ring opens to half that distance, then the number of minus 2 is assigned to it. If a patient's thumb and fingers are parted three quarters of the maximum distance then the number of minus 3 is assigned to it. If the patient's thumb and finger open to one quarter of the maximum distance then a number of minus 1 is assigned to it.

If it is necessary for a tester to use two fingers and a thumb in order to test the O-ring shape of the patient and the O-ring does not open than a number of plus 2 is assigned. If it opens, a number somewhere between 0 and plus 2 is assigned. If the tester is forced to use three fingers and the thumb and the O-ring shape does not open than it is assigned a number of plus 3. If it does open then it is assigned a number between plus 2 and plus 3. If the tester uses four fingers and a thumb and it does not open it is assigned a number of plus 4. If it does open, it is assigned a number between plus 3 and plus 4.

Generally speaking a reading of minus 3 and minus 4 indicates that a mass of cancer cells exists in the particular area of the internal organ which is being externally probed of that particular type of cancer. Minus 4 is of course the weakest reading indicating the weakest condition of the patient and plus 4 indicates the strongest condition of the patient and the numbers in between suggest the degrees between-these two extremes.
