The Most Truly Marvelous Invention of The Age. This Machine has Revolutionized the Medical World. Cures Diseases Heretofore Considered Incurable.


    One of the oldest and most potent forces of today is electricity. Edison stated a few years ago if electricity voltage and amperage could be controlled and directed it would revolutionize the medical world and cure all diseases. That we have arrived at this control today and have taken from electricity its quintessence, the above-named machine amply testifies. It is the eighth wonder of the world, supplying a force that is doing more for disease since its recent successful development than an ocean of drugs or a forest of surgeons' knives. The Advanced Medical Science Institute, which by February 1 will occupy commodious quarters at the Austell building, is the only firm in the country having a wonder-working machine of this order. The Diagraphoscope, besides its enormous initial cost is a machine so complicated, so delicate in its mechanism that only the highest type of skilled and trained physicians are able to utilize its marvelous powers. It gives a diagnosis that is absolutely true--not guess work. This is accomplished by showing to the naked eye every organ in the patient's body. By means of this phenomenal machine's power, one can see the heart in action, the rise and fall of the diaphram, a spoonful of bismuth passing down the throat. Any constriction is as visible as the light of day, as are kidney stones, or, in fact, any abnormal condition. It will show gall stones, so often believed to be cirrhosis of the liver.
    You can see right past his appendix, often observing the kidney stones, so often mistaken for appendicitis. No other specialist, no other apparatus in this country, can offer a diagnosis such as this. The screen used in the diagraphoscope is placed on the chest or other portion of the body, and every interior condition or happening is immediately visible to the naked eye.
    This screen is composed of a wonderful compound, which costs in the rough just five times its weight in gold. The rays which thus illuminate the human body are so powerful that they will pierce almost three feet of solid wood and reveal a copper cent on the opposite side. Yet their action is not in the slightest degree felt. The Diagraphoscope not only reveals whether a hidden bullet be on the right or left side, but just how far it has penetrated. Any enlargements of the joints are immediately revealed, and taking it all in all, makes the formerly much-wanted X-Ray look like a toy. Remember that the only place in the United States this marvel of the Twentieth century is in operation is in the offices of the Advanced Medical Sciences Institute.
    The long course of arduous study required for even a partial knowledge of the operation of this triumph of the world's greatest minds, as well as its enormous initial cost, places it far beyond the reach of the regular specialists. In fact, only the most elaborately equipped hospitals in Berlin and Paris have been able to stand the gigantic cost of the apparatus itself, let alone the practical impossibility of securing specialists whose skill is equal to the successful operation of its parts. Last Saturday a special demonstration was given at Advanced Science Institute's main office, New York city, of this machine to the medical fraternity, and many of the most eminent specialists of the country went to see it. To say that they were amazed would be to put it mildly indeed. A man was placed upon the stand, the costly screen was suspended before his body, the forces called into action, and in broad daylight, before the eyes of all assembled, his every organ sprang into instant view--another example of the machine's vast superiority over the obsolete X-Ray, to which darkness is essential. Then actual patients brought by the visiting doctors who had doubts about the correctness of their various diagnoses were brought forward. The first of these, a man with every symptom of valvular affection of the heart, was placed behind the screen and the radio forces immediately disclosed that the whole trouble was not in the slightest of the heart, except as that organ was affected by an enlarged stomach. The usual calm physicians broke into expressions of astonishment, which were further increased when a young man thought to be suffering with cancer of the stomach was indisputably shown to the naked eye to have nothing more then an ulcerated stomach. The dark spots of the ulcers were as plain as day. Expressions of amazement were heard on every side and the general opinion of those present was best expressed by the remark made by one of the best known specialists of the age to his associates: "There can be no more guessing: that machine absolutely shows beyond the shadow of a doubt just what is wrong." The fame of the Diagraphoscope is now worldwide. The doctor having charge as an investigator and scientist is second to none, and the sobriquet of Great was bestowed upon him and adopted by the leading societies of Europe and the press of the country because of his almost supernatural faculty of accomplishment that which lesser minds have deemed impossible. His consultation will be free to you for the first week only, after which he will charge you his customary examination fee of $5. The hours are from 9 to 12, 2 to 4 and to 7 to 8.
    If you are skeptical; if you doubt, come and be convinced. Remember that things move along so rapidly nowadays that people who say. "It can't be done" are interrupted by someone doing it.
    Tell your friends to call upon the doctors. Free examination February 1. Advanced Medical Science Institute, Suite 415, Austell Building.
