Endometrial Biopsy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: The endrometrium is the inside lining of the uterus. An endometrial biopsy is the removal of a sample of tissue from the endometrium for testing. A biopsy may be done to screen for cancer or precancerous cells, to determine the cause of irregular bleeding, or to investigate fertility problems. This procedure can also check for infections and monitor the effectiveness of certain medications. An endometrial biopsy can be done in your doctor's office in 10 to 15 minutes without the use of a sedative. Your doctor will first do a manual exam to determine the position of your uterus. And then place a speculum in your vagina to open it up and keep it open, so the cervix is visible. Your doctor may use another instrument called a tenaculum to grasp the cervix and hold it steady during the procedure. Your doctor will then pass a long, thin, flexible tube called a Pipelle through your vagina and cervix and into your uterus. The Pipelle is equipped with a piston-like device that creates suction when pulled. Your doctor will spin the Pipelle and move it up and down in the uterus, while sectioning up an adequate sample of endometrial tissue, then remove the Pipelle and place its contents in a container. Your doctor will complete the procedure by removing the tenaculum and speculum. After the biopsy, some patients are able to set up immediately and feel minimal cramping. Others, who may feel some dizziness, will be asked to lie still for about 10 to 15 minutes before being released. An anti-inflammatory medication, such as ibuprofen or naproxen, is often prescribed to minimize any menstrual-like cramping or discomfort. Your doctor will send the sample to the lab for testing. Results may be given to you by telephone or during a follow up appointment with your physician.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."

"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."
