My 3D-Flow OPRA (Object Pattern real-time Recognition Algorithms) invention could have already saved hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars and my 3D-CBS (3-D Complete Body Screening) invention which makes use of the 3D-Flow OPRA, could have already saved millions of lives with an effective early cancer detection (See below supported claims).

The indisputable advantages of my original 3D-Flow system, were recognized valuable from academia, industry and research centers (including a representative from CERN) in a major, formal, official, international, public, scientific review held at FERMILAB in 1993. The review panel stated in the summary statements of the 1994 final report ‘’: “The committee finds this project an interesting and a unique concept…, We believe the concept will work… We see no technical reason why the proposed ASIC processor could not be built… We do not believe there are any major flaws in the proposed system… The committee was impressed with the work already completed by an essentially one person operation… We see nothing fundamentally wrong…” and at page 6 of the report in regard to the 3D-Flow Architecture: “One unknown with this architecture has to do with the added flexibility provided by the programmability of this system. It is hard to a crystal ball gaze, however, there are some feeling that given this feature experimenters would probably think of clever uses not now possible…” and in regard to the System Design of the 3D-Flow: “The committee believes there are no major flaws in the conceptual design…”


Several senior experts in the field, some working in competing experiments, for over twenty years, have endorsed in writing the validity of my invention (see citations at “” and a few complete letters at ““) proving advantages to all of them, not just to one experiment.


I provided all the software tools, simulations, test-vectors at the system level that are matching those at the gate/transistor level. We checked again after I targeted it to the hardware of three types of FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array): ORCA from Lucent Technology, Xilinx and Altera. We checked again after spending the $906,000 grant I received from DOE in 1995 to buy instrumentation to develop software tools, to pay several subcontractors, including Synopsys, one of the best ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) design houses in the world to design the 3D-Flow ASIC in 350 nm in 1998 and providing the tape-out for the Silicon Foundry to build the 3D-Flow chip. We checked again all details in the 45-page peer-review article published in Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Sec. A, vol. 436 (1999) pp. 341-385 describing a programmable Level-1 Trigger system built in six 9U-VME crates.


All these 3D-Flow systems could have executed all Level-1 Trigger algorithm for LHCb, Atlas, CMS and many other experiments, including algorithms to efficiently identify signals from radiation related to the mutation of normal cells from the human body into cancerous cells for Medical Imaging applications such as PET (Positron Emission Tomography). It could have executed the algorithms sustaining the higher LHC luminosity in 2015, instead of the CMS’ experiment 4,000 electronic boards as Joel Butler, CERN CMS Spokesperson stated in his email dated 12/10/2016 which could not and for that reason had to be trashed.


The 3D-Flow invention has been proven feasible and functional in two hardware demonstrators.


In addition to the software simulation of 3D-Flow systems, two types of hardware demonstrators have been built to prove feasibility and functionality of a) the 3D-Flow architecture at its conceptual level and b) at the 3D-Flow system level.


  1. a) In 2001, I presented the proof of concept in hardware of my 3D-Flow invention at a booth at the Industrial Exhibition at the IEEE-NSS-MIC conference in San Diego, California, provided to me for free by its Chairman, Chris Parkman from CERN. The invention’s feasibility and functionality was proven in two large FPGAs from Altera by showing signal timings on the oscilloscope on two prototype boards with four 3D-Flow processors each interconnected in a cube structure. The attendees at the conference were invited to choose cluster patterns by commuting switches. Clusters found were displayed on LED and timing of the signals on the oscilloscope. See references.


  1. b) In 2003 at the same IEEE-NSS-MIC conference at Portland, Oregon, I presented two modular boards, each containing sixty-eight 3D-Flow processors (gl/RiIn0B) he feasibility and functionality of two modular boards proves that 3D-Flow systems for detectors of any dimensions can be built by adding an unlimited number of modular boards in the same chassis and in additional chassis, while each modular board will communicate with its adjacent boards in the same way as not communicate the two modular boards.


Even now, twenty-five years after my basic 3D-Flow technology-independent invention, the concept and implementation are still very competitive with any system built or planned to be built even by the most expensive experiments in the history of the planet at CERN.


To avoid events similar to the article on the MIT Technology Review in 2016 which was not aware ‘’ that my invention answered 25 years ago MIT’s question regarding Moore’s law, journalists and everyone interested in receiving the benefits from these inventions should publish and forward these information.


My 3D-Flow OPRA (Object Pattern real-time Recognition Algorithms) invention could have already saved hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars and my 3D-CBS (3-D Complete Body Screening) invention which makes use of the 3D-Flow OPRA, could have already saved millions of lives with an effective early cancer detection (See below supported claims).


Responsibility from decision makers and experts in the field to compare the 3D-Flow OPRA and 3D-CBS inventions with alternative approaches that have been funded although far less efficient and more costly is long overdue.


This legitimizes and justifies the request by taxpayers for the most prestigious universities in the world to examine my inventions and my responses to experts in the field and the request to everyone who have at heart saving taxpayer money and significantly reduce premature cancer deaths to Sign the Petition at requesting a public scientific discussion/review of my inventions at CERN in Geneva, similar to the one organized at FERMILAB in 1993.


The essence and benefits of my inventions are the following:


My 3D-Flow invention could have replaced at a fraction of the cost while providing more performance as reported on pages 102-117 of ‘’, hundreds of crates containing 4,000 electronic boards of CERN CMS L-1 Trigger Experiment and the trigger of many other experiments at CERN: in 1994 with a cylinder of electronics 1.8m tall x 1m in diameter, in 1999 with 6 x 9U VME crates as described in the 45-page peer-reviewed article published by Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Sec. A, vol. 436, (1999) pp.341-385.


Disruptive advantages and benefits from my 3D-Flow OPRA and 3D-CBS inventions when using current technology compared to alternative approaches.


  1. Application in Physics Experiments:


In 2015, my basic ‘’ 3D-Flow parallel-processing architecture and the synergy of its implementation in its different parts summarized in two pages at ‘’ and detailed at ‘ the inventive step of the new 3D-Flow OPRA with unprecedented advantages. Fifty-nine quotes from reputable industries proves the feasibility to build a 3D-Flow OPRA system with over 10,000 channels, in one 36 cm cube of electronics capable of sustaining several terabytes/sec. of input data and execute complex real-time Object Pattern Recognition Algorithms (OPRA) at a production cost of approximately $100,000. Larger systems can be built with several similar cubes of electronics.


  1. Application in Medical Imaging


In addition, when the 3D-Flow OPRA invention is used in the 3D-CBS (3-D Complete Body Screening) technology, it makes it hundreds of times more efficient than the over 10,000 PET (Positron Emission Tomography) devices used in the hospitals (See 11-minute video at


The 3D-CBS can claim for the first time a true paradigm change in molecular imaging because it can offer at the same time the three advantages of


  1. a) an effective detection of diseases such as cancer at a very early and highly curable stage, and improved diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of treatments,
  2. b) a radiation dose that is 1% of current PET and
  3. c) less than 4-minute, very low examination cost that will cover all organs of the body. Hence, screening on specific organs such as: mammography, PAP-test, colonoscopy, and PSA will be unnecessary.


The 3D-CBS invention can reduce cancer deaths by over 50% through an effective early detection while reducing healthcare costs.


This is not claimed by me but experimental data over 50 years proves it and is confirmed by major cancer organizations. I am claiming to achieve the three goals listed before, which no other device or approach demonstrates to be able to achieve and that create a paradigm change in molecular imaging enabling an effective early cancer detection that is what it saves lives.


(See the 2000 book: “400+ times improved PET efficiency for lower-dose radiation, lower-cost cancer screening at ‘’, the five-page 2003 article at ‘’, the 32-page 2013 article at “”, one-page innovations at “”, one-page benefits at ‘’, two-page 2016 summary and comparison with the Explorer at: ‘’ and the source information from the authors of the “Explorer Project” at ‘’ or at ‘’, which was funded by NIH for $15.5 million although less efficient, incapable of saving many lives and more than ten times as expensive as the 3D-CBS).
