The OmniBody Scan is a non-invasive tool with no harmful side effects. Itis manufactured exclusively for American HealthChoice by a respected infraredimaging manufacturer with years of successful experience in this field. "Ourproduct adheres to the highest standards of thermography. It is easy to useand offers a very high grade of technology and quality. With its infraredtechnology, it allows an oncologist to find cancers, including breast cancer,years away from becoming a mass large enough to be detected by mammography, CTscans, MRIs or Ultrasound," Dr. Stucki said.

Thermography uses infrared technology to capture a picture of the body'simage without the use of radiation or invasive technology. Data on the body'sskin temperature is sent to a computer that converts the patterns to imageswhich are read by a physician looking for abnormalities. As cancer grows, itsneed for nutrients increases and this activity causes increases intemperatures (neoangiogenesis). These temperature variations, caught by theinfrared imaging, can be an early sign of cancer or pre-cancerous activity.

Finally, the Company is pleased to announce that Dr. Trip Chaudhury, M.D.,Board Certified in Oncology, with practices in Beaumont and Houston, whocompleted a dissertation in Medical School on neoangiogenisis, has joined theCompany's Advisory Board.
