MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: El mdico puede obtener una biopsia de piel para observar el tejido con un microscopio y realizar un diagnstico de su condicin. La piel es el rgano ms amplio del cuerpo y es responsable de: regular la temperatura corporal, percibir los estmulos dolorosos y placenteros, proporcionar una barrera protectora contra bacterias, toxinas y evitando la evaporacin de lquido interno. La piel consta de tres capas: la epidermis, la dermis y la hipodermis. La epidermis ayuda a prevenir que la mayora de las bacterias y otras sustancias extraas ingresen al cuerpo. La dermis proporciona el soporte a la epidermis y le otorga a la piel flexibilidad y dureza, la hipodermis es la capa de clulas de grasa que proporciona aislacin y apoyo protector. Las biopsias de piel se ordenan comnmente por verrugas y lunares, cnceres de piel y otros crecimientos, tracciones alrgicas, infecciones bacterianas y micticas, agn, psoriasis, y lesiones y cicatrices.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

Noel Turner, III
Burts, Turner, Rhodes & Thompson

We have used Medical Legal Art's staff for every one of our cases over the past 12 years and have found their services to be extraordinary.

"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."
