|Cervical Cancer Prevention - Medical Animation
|MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable types of cancer with regular testing and is highly curable when found early. You can take action to avoid exposure to HPV, or human papillomavirus virus, the most common cause of cervical cancer by limiting the number of people you have sex with, avoiding sex partners who engage in high risk activities, delaying sex until you're older, and using condoms to help prevent the spread of HPV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Avoid smoking, which increases the risk of cervical cancer in women infected with HPV. Get vaccinated with Gardasil, which prevents infection with the two types of HPV responsible for most cases of cervical cancer. Get annual pap tests, which look for precancerous changes on the cervix that might develop into cervical cancer if not treated in time. Get the HPV test, which tests for HPV in the cervix. Be sure and talk to your doctor about ways to reduce your risk of cervical cancer.
|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."

|"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and
timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to
juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our
firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the
past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."

|"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the
case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your
graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the
insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to
$475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.
We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to
repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be
more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many
thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury
which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and
fair" amount to settle this case."
