A Bio-acoustical Perceptual Sense* for Early Medical Diagnosis and Treatment

Humans have five basic senses that are essentially outward bound. These senses take care of the human survival process. Concurrently, there is an enormous degree of involuntary activity unfolding within a human body that humans are literally not aware of. Some of the examples include water circulating through the body, blood flow within the body, the functional activity of lungs, heart, kidneys, brain, etc. The research proposal discloses a first-of-its-kind method of developing an inward bound ‘sense’ for harnessing perception beyond the ‘five senses’ which are distinctively outward bound. The proposal involves monitoring, recording and analyzing the acoustic fingerprint of the blood around the blood vessels as it flows through them. This would allow the medical fraternity to regularly track and monitor internal bodily parameters which could detect abnormalities in the human body at a very early stage. Thus, the developed ‘inward sense’ would prove to be helpful for diagnosis of any disease in its preliminary phases.
