Tratamientos para el cáncer de pulmón - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Las opciones de tratamiento para el cáncer incluyen terapias locales como cirugía y radioterapia, y terapias sistémicas como quimioterapia y terapia dirigida. Puede recibir uno o una combinación de estos tratamientos. Existen varias opciones quirúrgicas según el tipo y el estadio del cáncer. Durante una resección en cuña o segmentectomía, se extirpa el tumor y un pequeño margen de tejido sano. En una lobectomía o lobectomía en manguito se retira un lóbulo de un pulmón. Durante una neumonectomía, el cirujano retira todo el pulmón. En una resección en manguito se retira una sección enferma de una vía respiratoria grande y se vuelven a unir los extremos sanos. Durante cualquiera de estos procedimientos, su cirujano puede retirar linfa para verificar si existe algún signo de cáncer. La terapia de radiación o radioterapia es un tratamiento local que utiliza rayos de alta energía para matar o encoger las células cancerígenas con el fin de aliviar los síntomas. La radioterapia de rayo externo o ERBT se dirige hacia la ubicación del cáncer desde una máquina fuera del cuerpo. La braquiterapia o radioterapia interna, a menudo en forma de bolitas, se utiliza con más frecuencia para ayudar a mitigar el bloqueo causado por el cáncer en las vías respiratorias grandes. La quimioterapia es un tratamiento sistémico que utiliza fármacos para detener el crecimiento de las células cancerígenas eliminándolas o evitando su división celular. Una vez que los fármacos entran en el torrente sanguíneo, se desplazan y llegan a las células cancerígenas de todo el cuerpo. Las terapias dirigidas son tratamientos más recientes para el cáncer que funcionan enfocándose en anormalidades genéticas específicas de las células cancerígenas. Una terapia dirigida Bevacizumab priva al tumor de alimento al impedirle crear un nuevo suministro de sangre. Otra terapia dirigida, Erlotinib, detiene el crecimiento del tumor al bloquear los químicos que indican a las células cancerígenas crecer y dividirse.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"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."

"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."
