CT Scan - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
A CT scan, also known as a CAT scan or computerized axial tomography, is a painless diagnostic test that uses x-rays and computers to create cross-sectional images of bones and tissues inside your body. Your doctor may recommend a CT scan to examine your body for any of the following. Blood clots, broken bones, cancerous tumors, infections, internal injuries and bleeding, and signs of heart and vascular disease. A CT scan helps your doctor select the correct location for surgery, biopsy, or radiation therapy, check the treatment of cancer or heart disease, and check your condition after surgery. A CT scanner is a large square or round x-ray machine with a tunnel through the center. During your CT scan, you will lie on a table that slowly passes through the tunnel. As you move through the tunnel, a giant ring, called a gantry, will rotate around your body. The gantry contains a tube that will release x-ray beams and detectors that will measure the amount of radiation absorbed by your body. The x-ray beams will capture many views of your body from different angles as the gantry spins. The detectors will send data to a computer that will create cross-sectional images of the bones and soft tissues inside your body. The scan allows your doctor to see the location of a condition inside your body, which will help them decide how to treat it or to see how well your treatment is progressing. In some cases, you may receive contrast die before your procedure in a drink, an injection, or a barium enema to make it easier for your doctor to see certain areas of your body. If you received a drink with contrast die, your esophagus or stomach will be highlighted. If you received an injection, your blood vessels, gallbladder, liver, or urinary tract will be highlighted. If you received a barium enema, your large intestine will be highlighted. After the procedure, you can resume your normal activities. If you received contrast die, drink plenty of fluids to help your kidneys remove the die from your body.

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."

"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."

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."
