View the patented Specification of the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test
The U.S. Patent Office took more than seven years of vigorous evaluation before officially granting a patent for Dr. Omura’s Bi-Digital O-Ring Test (BDORT) in 1993. The first U.S. patent application was almost rejected because the application seemed too unbelievable to be true. It is untrue that Dr. Omura's patent application was rejected once or even twice. In fact the patent office requested more experimental and clinical evidence to support the application.

After 3 years of extensive research, additional supporting evidence was presented to the Patent Office. Upon review, the Patent Office agreed Dr. Omura obtained enough evidence and the clinical results he had claimed on his patent application; however, they wanted further evidence that other qualified medical doctors, dentists and scientists could obtain the same results

Japanese Science Documentary

A Japanese science documentary television program comparable to NOVA in the United States, documented basic research and clinical applications of the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test at a medical school, dental school, and major hospital in Japan. On patients randomly selected from new patients waiting to be examined at the out-patient clinic of the second largest hospital in Japan, non-invasive diagnosis was performed using the BDORT to pinpoint the exact location and nature of pathology where the examining doctor knew only the chief complaint. In one case, a woman of about 65 years of age came to the clinic for the first time, complaining of abdominal discomfort. Within 30 minutes, doctors using the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test located a very small area (less than 5 mm in diameter) of this patient's stomach with a possible diagnosis of stomach cancer. Both the outline of her stomach and the exact location of the possible cancer were mapped on her abdominal wall by Bi-Digital O-Ring Testing. Then the same patient was evaluated by independent specialists using the latest standard laboratory tests, including X-ray after swallowing barium, fiber-optic gastroscopic examination with a spray of indigocarmine in the questionable area, and biopsy. Then results were compared. They where found to be identical.

Three clinical cases with entire examinations, including a case of neck pain involving the male TV interviewer, were documented in this TV documentary. The non-invasive BDORT revealed partial compression of the cervical spinal cord, which was confirmed by MRI imaging. The producer and his staff spent over 5 years from planning to completion of the TV documentary, which was broadcast as two 30 minute science documentary programs and included interviews of medical doctors and dentists, most of whom were professors doing actual research from various universities in Japan. These broadcasts received enthusiastic positive feedback by the medical viewers and the public, and were later translated into English. They documented a scientific basis for Dr. Omura's BDORT with both animal and human research, and confirmed the validity of a non-invasive diagnosis using the BDORT. The documentaries showed that the findings obtained by using the BDORT in each of the three clinical cases were proved correct by the latest standard laboratory tests.

The English version of the Japanese science television documentaries is available through the Tokai Television Station, Nagoya City, Japan, as well as through the International College of Acupuncture and Electrotherapeutics, New York, through special permission of the producer of the Science Documentary program, “Television Museum”, Mr. Tomoaki Tashiro.

Wikipedia Rebuttal

Recently, giving the false impression that they understand the subject, some individuals who have never studied, learned or researched the BDORT, and have no known medical or scientific qualifications, have made false and irresponsible statements using the user-written Wikipedia online encyclopedia. They have deliberately misrepresented Dr. Omura and the BDORT by means of confusing it with Applied Kinesiology (AK) or 'Peak Muscle Resistance Testing' (PMRT) - which have a totally different basis and have almost nothing in common with the BDORT. The BDORT is mostly an electromagnetic resonance test utilizing basic principles of physics, physical chemistry, and the latest medical science. These individuals have selectively quoted, ignored and distorted the information from the citations that they quote on Wikipedia - which if followed and read in detail provide clear and unequivical information which refutes the claims made by these persons in the Wikipedia article. Because of this abuse, Wikipedia should not be used as an accurate source of information about the BDORT or Dr Omura. Read More »
