Fibromialgia - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: La fibromialgia es un trastorno crónico que afecta a 5 millones de estadounidenses, en su mayoría mujeres. Se caracteriza por un sueño no reparador, así como por dolor y rigidez muscular que puede durar todo el día, dolor en los cuatro cuadrantes del cuerpo y presencia de puntos sensibles específicos. Aunque el dolor de la fibromialgia puede variar en intensidad, las personas que lo padecen, a menudo, lo describen como un dolor persistente y profundo o como un dolor muscular punzante o lacerante. Otros síntomas comunes incluyen fatiga incapacitante, insomnio, dolor en las articulaciones, calambres en las piernas, dolor de cabeza y problemas de concentración y memoria conocidos como fibroniebla. Puesto que no existe un examen de laboratorio o una radiografía para confirmar el diagnóstico de fibromialgia, en cierto momento les hicieron creer a algunos pacientes que el dolor estaba en sus mentes. Hoy en día, diversos investigadores piensan que el cerebro y médula espinal procesan los mensajes de dolor de forma incorrecta, lo que ocasiona que los pacientes con fibromialgia sientan el dolor con más intensidad. Uno de los aspectos únicos de la fibromialgia es la presencia de puntos sensibles en lugares específicos del cuerpo. Cuando se presionan estos puntos, las personas con fibromialgia sienten dolor; mientras que las personas sin el síndrome, solo sienten presión. Para que un paciente sea diagnosticado con fibromialgia, éste debe estar sensible a por lo menos 11 de los 18 posibles puntos sensibles y experimentar dolor generalizado en los cuatro cuadrantes del cuerpo.

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

"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."
