Cystoscopy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Your doctor will perform a cystoscopy to diagnose conditions of your urinary tract. Your urinary system or urinary tract produces urine and excretes it from the body. It includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. In men, the prostate gland wraps around the urethra at the base of the bladder. As blood circulates, it passes through the kidneys where wastes and extra fluid are removed to create urine. The urine then moves down the ureters to be stored in the bladder, an expandable, balloon-shaped muscle. During urination, urine leaves the bladder through the urethra and is expelled from the body. By allowing your doctor to view the interior of the urethra, bladder, and the openings of the ureters, a cystoscopy may reveal the following conditions. An unusual growth, such as a polyp, cyst, or tumor. A stone in or near the bladder. Chronic inflammation or infection. A stricture or narrowing of the urethra Enlargement of the prostate gland. Or ulcers in the bladder wall. Before your procedure, an IV line may be inserted into your vein to provide medication. Your doctor will begin by applying a local anesthetic to numb the area. Once the area is numb, he or she will gently insert the tip of a cystoscope into the urethra, and slowly advance it up into the bladder. The end of the cystoscope contains a light source and lenses, which project images through an eyepiece and onto a video screen. By introducing a clear, sterile solution, your doctor will expand the bladder. He or she will carefully examine the lining of the bladder and urethra by looking through the eyepiece on the cystoscope, as well as by viewing images projected on to the video screen. When your doctor is finished, the scope will be removed. Your doctor can tell you what was seen immediately after the test. If a biopsy was taken, results are usually available in a few days. This procedure usually lasts about 2 to 10 minutes. You would usually be able to go home soon after your cystoscopy. Your doctor will likely prescribed antibiotics to prevent an infection, and may offer you medications to treat any lingering discomfort.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"You and your company are wonderful. Your service, turnaround time, quality and price were better than I could have asked for. Please add me to your long list of satisfied customers."

Robert F. Linton, Jr.

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."
