Dr. Jones has a wide range of professional interests, which include medical imaging and studies of the relationships between science, technology, and society, including the relationships between Eastern and Western medicine.

His landmark studies of acupuncture using contemporary medical imaging and of Pranic Healing using conventional laboratory methods are providing a scientific understanding and basis for these ancient healing methods.
