Researchers developed new software that can predict if a person should see a physician by analyzing a picture of the person’s tongue.

Researchers have now developed new software that can predict if a person should see a physician by analyzing a picture of the person’s tongue. They say that this could be a unique step towards preventive medicine.

Tongue Analysis Software Uses Ancient Chinese Medicine to Warn of Disease

The idea of the software comes from ancient Chinese medicine that is based on the balance and flow of energy in the body.

Research team said that their software could classify zheng status of all 263 gastritis patients and 48 healthy volunteers took part in the study. The gastritis patients were classified based on the intensity of the symptoms and what bacteria that had caused gastritis.

“Knowing your zheng classification can serve as a pre-screening tool and help with preventive medicine .Our software helps bridge Eastern and Western medicine, since an imbalance in zheng could serve as a warning to go see a doctor. Within a year, our ultimate goal is to create an application for smartphones that will allow anyone to take a photo of their tongue and learn the status of their zheng,” said Dong Xu, chair of MU’s computer science department in the College of Engineering and the co-author of the study.
