Scanner" refers to the devices that would perform as noted below;
"prototype" refers to those devices that are developed based
on existing devices and project
purposes subsequent to finished device developments.
* The prototype(s) will progress to
combine the end-
desired capabilities of existing
equipment combined with those end-desired capabilities developed through the research
process, and will operate via computer & software -- toward/for the facilitation of the above noted purposes.
* In process of assistive diagnosis, the Myo/CT-scanner will develop comparative scenario/ hypothesis and determinations -- based on extensive database access and process capabilities, combined with operator-programable prioritization for selecting which data to give more weight to in the interpretation, diagnosis, and prognosis determination process.
* The prototype(s) will progress to be able to "read" the outputed data, photos, scans, etc of other devices (including X-ray and CAT/MRI Device output), and progress to capability for making interpretations for inclusion in the Myo/CT-Scanner Assessment Database by which it developes comparative hypothesis and determinations. Osteopaths specially trained in myo-fascial injury assessment would be essential in developing this capability.
* Existing devices (Bio-Feedback Devices, X-ray Equipment, CAT Scanner, & MRI Device [& The Prototype(S) Developed In Research] are used as necessary in research to:
help both determine and perform NBE Field assessments
perform all measurements deemed related to test purposes
develop database to record specific capabilities and limitations of each device in its performance of each aspect of the assessments. Keep records of those devices that get phased out. This will be used to to assist in development of "Myo-Scanner" software database.
* CAT/MRI Scanners are used to help direct the calibration of the bio-feedback and the development and calibration of device prototypes (?)
Prospective Myo/Ct-Scanner Assessments/Properties:
The following will make more sense having read about the "Sensor Field Arrays" (SFA; see Fascia Memory Theory)
* Measure ELECTRICAL: Voltage, Current, Frequencies, Size of Frequency Orbs; PROXIMAL: size & proximity of area neural systems to other membranes in same affected area as well as to neural systems and membranes in other areas of varying distance/status; neural system ELASTICITY. Compare/Relate electrical states with Proximites and Elasticities.
* Measure area cell densities, cell moisture and related area ratios, fascial surface friction, myo-fascial elasticity
* Measure shifts and Shift rates of above properties under conditions
* Conditions incl. during and after stasis, movement, treatment (especially including touch-related and energetic modalities (massage, accupucture, chiro/osteo, cranial-sacral, Reiki, Polarity, etc.), and post-mortum, as well as in-utero (with exception to devices/assessments determined detrimental to child in-utero).
* Correlate Findings (of other devices, of other research also):
* Determine relation between above determined properties, myo-fascial changes/degeneration/improvement, objective medical assessment , subject's subjective experience.
Some Research Objectives, Questions to Address
Some key objectives are noted here in the form of pertinent questions to be addressed by preliminary and/or ongoing research. These are questions that the myo/ct-scanner will be designed to effectively address and respond to -- for any given condition or set of conditions (ideally), for an individual or group of individuals:
General Preliminary Research:
Q: Who is doing the following research, or similar, or related research (past, currently, and projected), what has been the results so far, and what are other useful details about such research?
Q: What, if any, coordination and integration of the following research has been facilitated (who, when, where, etc), to what extent, and with what results?
Q: What are the (past, current, and projected) means of assessing the STATE (from early stages of formation to various stages of transition towards "chronic" state, and from any one of the above states toward various stages or states of healed tissue and full recovery of cell function) of a given case of scar tissue, myofascial adhesion, strained segment of muscle, tendon, or ligament tissue ?
Q: What are the (past, current, and projected) means of assessing the CHRONOLOGY (each stage of formation and transition) of a given case of scar tissue, myo-fascial adhesion, strained segment of muscle, tendon, or ligament tissue?
Q: What are best means of keeping current with noted Research for each change in status or findings, prioritizing which data of that is most applicable to overall and specific research projects?
Fascia Relationships Preliminary Research:
Q: How and to what degree is it effecting the smooth movement and balance of connective tissue around it as well as of tissue in areas of correlated postural compensation,
Q: What is the exact relation of these elements to the performance of various operations by surrounding nearby bones, organs, connective tissues ?
Q: By what means and How accurately have we been assessing the projected chronology of rehabilitation for various conditions ?
Q: How, and to what degree might [the above factors] have been related to any/all states of a disease conditions, to chronic pain, to significant events related to an individual and to significant people in an individual's life, and to subjective attitude concerning ability to heal.
Fascia Related Device Preliminary Research:
[A Database Constructed to organize results so that one can quickly learn just how applicable any given device has been for assessing each situation or condition.]
Q: As regards Fascia Relationships Research, What devices (past, current, and projected) are used and/or usable, and to what degree, in assessing ...
a) ... as regards Above Fascia Relationships Research.
b) ... as regards Bio-History of Connective Tissue (including current response to environmental stimulus), including "chronic" as well as "acute" injury conditions and during recovery/ rehabilitation; same (eventually) for other bodily tissues:
- to determine potential in diagnosis of pathologies on various levels, including emotional & mental;
- to determine potential in assessment of factors related to somatic-memory recall experience;
- to determine potential in assistance to various modalities of treatment
c) ... as regards Pain referral phenomena: physical as well as psycho-somatic factors; relationships between physical, emotional, mental, bio-magnetic neural field response under varying conditions, PNI (psycho-neuro- immunological) relationships, effects of medications on connective tissue and operation of neural networks, neurotransmitters, hormones, etc.
d) ... as regards Spinal Fluid flow and rhythm, brain tissue expansion and compression, and related cranial movement dynamics; related Bio-History and Pathologies; CNS-associated memory recall as related to somatic memory recall.
e) ... as regards Subjective somatic awareness capabilities and relation to PNI, preventative maintenance strategies, techniques, and devices; potential of subsequently developed public-use myo-scanner devices to assist in the fore-mentioned.
