Biopsia transtorácica con aguja BTA - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Su mdico puede realizar una biopsia transtorcica con aguja o VTA para diagnosticar enfermedades dentro o cerca de sus pulmones. Los pulmones se encuentran en la cavidad del pecho. Entre la superficie de los pulmones y la pared del pecho, existen dos capas de tejidos que constituyen la pleura. Una de las capas, la pleura visceral, se encuentra adjunta al pulmn en s, mientras que la otra capa, la pleura parietal, se encuentra adjunta a la pared del pecho. Una pequea cantidad de lquido en el espacio pleural, que es el espacio entre las dos capas, permite que los pulmones se expandan y contraigan suavemente con cada respiracin. Se puede ordenar una biopsia transtorcica con aguja para diagnosticar afecciones como el asma, el cncer de pulmn, la neumona y lesiones en el pecho. Antes de su procedimiento, es posible que le administren medicamentos para eliminar la tos. Su mdico puede usar diversas tcnicas de diagnstico por imgenes como una tomografa computarizada o un ultrasonido que le ayudarn a ubicar con precisin el objetivo de su biopsia y a guiar la insercin de la aguja. Se le limpiar la piel en el lugar por donde se insertar la aguja, justo encima de una de sus costillas. Para ayudarlo a relajarse es posible que le administren un sedante suave y anestesia local para adormecer el rea. Por lo general, el procedimiento dura menos de 30 minutos.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical Legal Art wins our firm's highest accolades for professionalism and exhibit quality. In fact, many of the doctors I work with request color copies of your outstanding artwork to show to patients during the informed consent process."

Jeanne Dolan, BSRN, AlNC

"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."

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."
