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:
"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"[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.

"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."
