Digital Meridian Imaging

Digital Meridian Imaging

Digital Meridian Imaging is the process of measuring the electrical resistance of acupuncture points and placing the results in mathematical algorithms based on OM theory to produce diagnostic graphs and charts. It's not a far leap from the familiar EKG or EEG used extensively in allopathic medicine. The DMI concept is based on the concurrent and independent measurement discoveries of acupuncture points by Japanese doctors Yoshio Nakatani and Kobei Akabane and German doctor Reinhold Voll in the early 1950's.

Understanding that acupuncture points and channels conduct electricity differently than the surrounding skin, Dr. Nakatani discovered that anomalies in electrical resistance measurements indicated meridian dysfunction. He developed acupuncture treatment protocols to balance qi in the meridians and termed the process Ryodoraku.

DMI uses these same principles combined with modern statistical analysis to measure electrical resistance and correlate the results with abnormalities in qi flow. The software then produces summary information and recommendations in charts and graphs.

The exam results are displayed in a graphical format and categorized as high, low, normal, or split. Split means that the left and right measurements of the same meridian vary considerably, indicating an imbalance in that channel (GB channel, in purple below).
