How Smoking Causes COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) - Medical Animation
This 3D medical animation shows how smoking tobacco damages lung tissue leading to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, the 4th leading cause of death in the U.S. The animation shows smoke traveling down the trachea into the lungs, followed by a close-up view of the lung's alveolar sacs (alveoli). Over time, these air sacs break down (emphysema) and form pockets of useless lung tissue called 'blebs' which trap air in the lungs and reduce lung volume. The net effect is that the person cannot get enough oxygen to survive.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."

"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."

"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of illustrators for all my medical malpractice cases. … Please know that I enthusiastically recommend you to all my colleagues.

Frank Rothermel
Bernhardt & Rothermel
"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."
