Echocardiogram - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: An echocardiogram is a common test using sound waves to map out the shape and size of your heart, thus allowing your doctor to see how well your heart pumps blood and look for abnormalities of the heart valves and chambers. In a transthoracic echocardiogram, your sonographer will put a cool gel on your chest. Your sonographer will move a transducer firmly through the gel, sending painless sound waves to your heart. The sound waves bounce off your heart and echo back to the transducer. The sound waves are converted to moving images of your heart muscles, chambers, and valves on a video screen. A doppler echocardiogram records echoes from blood cells. The speed and direction of the blood flow indicate how well blood gets around inside your heart. A stress echocardiogram evaluates images of the heart before and after exercise, or following medication that simulates exercise on the heart. Comparing your echo results before and after activity provides your doctor information about certain heart problems, such as coronary artery disease, that may only occur with exertion. A transesophageal echocardiogram sends sound waves through a transducer passed gently down your throat while you are under sedation. This test provides a closer, more detailed evaluation of your heart.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of illustrators for all my medical malpractice cases. … Please know that I enthusiastically recommend you to all my colleagues.

"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 illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."
