At the present stage of medicine development more and more attention is paid to various noninvasive methods, including electrophysiological, of the investigation of functional state of vitally important systems of organism. Modern computer technologies used for the processing of data obtained by means of such methods enable to significantly speed up the process of
obtaining the results of research, to standardize the technique, as well as to decrease the influence of a subjective factor on the received results.
One of the most promising electrographic methods for estimation of the functional state of an organism is the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV). The technique is based on the registration of glow stimulated by photons and electrons, as well as other particles near the surface of biological objects placed in a high intensity electromagnetic field. It is supposed that the biological emission enables estimations of the entropy of human energetic states (K.
Korotkov, 1995, 2000, 2001).

Objectives. To explore the potentials of the GDV Technologies as applicable to the oncology practice. The aim of the work was twofold: to find out the prognostic potential of the GDV and to see how it may reflect the monitoring of patient’s state in the process of complex oncology treatment.
Design. All subjects were diagnosed with cancer with conventional means including biopsy; GDV measures were taken from 10 fingers of both hands before any oncology treatment and 2 and 6 weeks after complex treatment including surgery, chemotherapy and irradiation. Blind study design.
Settings/Location. Data collection: National Oncology Center of Georgia, Tbilisi; data processing: St. Petersburg Technical University ITMO, Russia; duration: 1999-2003.
