Lumbar Injuries and Surgical Fixation - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit begins with one sagittal (side cut-away) view of the lumbar spine illustrating the pre-operatvive condition. This image clearly reveals the L1 compression fracture, the disc bulges at L2-3, L3-4 and L4-5, and the spondylolisthesis and hypertrophic changes at L5-S1. This image is specifically based on actual pre-operative MRI scans.
Also, included in this exhibit are the key steps involved in a multilevel decompression and fusion procedure. These images include the posterior exposure of the lower lumbar spine through an open surgical incision, laminectomies and the placement of posterior fusion hardware from L4 down to S1.
"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your
illustration to the defendants, with a copy to
the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million
dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.
I appreciate your help!"

"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
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
