Contributing to the evolution of SCIENCE

The study of medicine is an ongoing stream of new discoveries that continue to shape the very way we approach PROBLEM SOLVING. The Biofoundation for Angiogenesis Research and Development also known as The ANGIOFOUNDATION (501c3) funds and supports specialized clinical research projects that underscore the future of how physicians and scientists identify disorders and the resources that pave new heights in efficiency and performance with the least possible risk.

Since its official launch in Dec., 2001, the AngioFoundation was committed to conducting various disciplines of clinical research to support the advancement of technologies, treatment protocols and diagnostic science. We support research concepts and exploratory studies of minimally invasive modalities to treat cancer and inflammatory arthritis by analyzing "angiogenesis" or new blood vessel (angio) formation (genesis). Major international congresses* showed tumor blood vessel formation revealed by sonogram Doppler imaging was the best predictor of cancer aggression. Treatment success is validated when abnormal arteries decrease in number after therapy. Treatment failure may be demonstrated earlier with this test allowing alternate therapies to be applied. The AngioFoundation has also expanded its research work through collaboration with global technology developers or modern laser innovations, MRI's & ultrasound technologies to detect and treat prostate, breast, thyroid and skin cancers non-invasively. The AngioFoundation's public mission is to advance image guided diagnostic and therapeutic technologies worldwide and supports teaching programs for physicians on new modalities to diagnose and deliver therapies for cancer and allied diseases including inflammatory arthritis.

Research & Educational PROGRAMS
The AngioFoundation has been recognized worldwide by official medical organizations and peer reviews for its work in FIVE MAIN focal topics and class divisions. We continually maintain and update research works in these categories to support the advancement of these disciplines as part of The AngioFoundation's commitment to the scientific community.

Advanced use of Doppler Sonographic Imaging technology to identify malignant cancers and monitor their behavior through blood flow parameters- (Breast, Lung, Bladder, Prostate, Melanoma, etc) which correlates with comparative studies with other current technologies such as MRI, CT etc. Research / assessment of musculoskeletal disorders (arthritis, inflammation, trauma) and dermatological issues through the advanced use of 3D/4D ULTRASOUND innovations. TECH REVIEWER: Beta-testing, industry-wide comparative feature review/evaluation program. Drafting of FDA application / compliance documentation of digital imaging technologies (models, brands and generations) including sub-dermal and musculoskeletal treatment devices Internal study of all cancer issues and health disorders of victims associated with 9/11 and other disaster-related environmental toxic exposures. Collaboration with geological labs & environmental statistics. (See First Responders Cancer Resource) Function review / performance evaluation program of all laser-based medical equipment including devices specializing in sub-dermal musculatory treatment of chronic disorders.

IMAGING ASSISTS SURGICAL PLANNING OF INDICATED BIOPSIES

In my extensive career as the medical director of an advanced imaging diagnostics practice, I have provided great assistance to many surgeons with my work using advanced Doppler Scanning of Tumors and Cosmetic Disorders. I have uncovered countless dermal and subcutaneous issues that would have otherwise gone undetected with less effective technologies, leading to potential complications in the surgical procedure and patient recovery. The advancement in this innovation empowers upcoming surgical procedures with remarkable confidence of a safer end result. Where biopsies are becoming a thing of the past, our non-invasive 4D Digital imaging replaces weeks of lab work and radiologic tests and often provides more useful information.

DIGITAL BIOPSY CASES: WHAT ARE YOU ABOUT TO BIOPSY? WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE NEEDLE INSERTS? Here we have 2 subdermal masses which are non tender and firm with no history of trauma. Case A: The oval mass (dark echoes=suspicious) with irregular vessels (red) was referred as a probable cyst or lipoma. The tumor is highly vascular and connected from the aorta by way of the subclavian feeding artery. Liposuction could result in massive hemorrhage and spread of tumor cells into the circulation.

 

Case B: The ovoid white region (bright echoes=benign) is ossified as confirmed by the CT scan of the coccyx. The sonogram allows you to reassure the patient it is NOT CANCER. It prompts one to avoid a standard needle that could bend, crack or dislodge into the soft tissues requiring further exploration to locate/retrieve the broken metal fragment.
