Breast Anatomy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women today. Knowing more about your own breast anatomy can help you in early cancer detection and prevention. Your breasts are connected to small masses of tissue called lymph nodes by way of lymph vessels. The lymph nodes are responsible for collecting bacteria, cancer cells, and other unhealthy material. You have groups of these lymph nodes under your arms, above your collar bones, and behind your breast bone, as well as in other parts of your body. Each breast is made up of lobes, lobules, and ducts. The lobes consist of smaller lobules that contain groups of tiny milk-producing glands. When a breast is producing milk it passes through the ducts, into the nipple, where it exits the body. Breast cancer most commonly develops in the lobules, glands, and ducts of the breast.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

James D. Horwitz
Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, P.C.
Bridgeport, CT

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."

"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."
