A device that detects the vibrational frequency of cells.
Comparison and Contrast of frequencies will enable detection of cancerous cells from "healthy" cells.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Uh, cells don't vibrate, except maybe on Star Trek. The magnetic moment of atomic nuclei in a cell, however, do. Using radio waves and an intense magnetic field, these vibrations (to oversimplify) can be detected. Interpretation can produce detailed 3D images, as well as detecting tumors in otherwise healthy tissue. Ain't it cool to be living in the future? [rmutt, Mar 14 2000, last modified Oct 21 2004]
Well, this is straight out of sci-fi. Readers of the excellent Warren Ellis comic _Transmetropolitan_ know all about Genome Readers. I believe issue 27 has one in it towards the end. [dnm, Mar 14 2000, last modified Oct 21 2004]
Forcing cell cyte development
At least this works on the active college male. [reensure, Mar 14 2000]
[eyemage]'s real identity: Albert Abrams
"Discoverer" that every disease has a unique frequency by which it may be identified and attacked; "inventor" of the Dynomizer, Oscilloclast, and Radioclast. I just happened to read that referenced Bob DeVries article yesterday, and then spotted this idea today. I bet he thought nobody would make the connection, and they didn't for 19 years! He must have succeeded with life extension or reincarnation, though. [notexactly, Apr 09 2019]
||The dust particles in the Martian atmosphere are of the order of 40 microns in diameter (and thus the daytime sky is pink, not blue). This is small enough to intercalate between cells of the body. Right through the skin. If they were nanotech particles, all the better!
||Interesting, do single cells really shake to their own beat? of course, defined by the types of metabolism. Seems plausible.
