Screening for Risk of Health Problems from Obesity - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Screening for risk of health problems from obesity. Two common ways to help gauge your risk of health problems from obesity are body mass index, also known as BMI, and waist size. BMI estimates your body fat by comparing your height to your weight. You can enter your measurements into a BMI calculator or your health care provider can figure out your BMI for you. Once you know your BMI, you or your healthcare provider can find it on a chart to see if you are underweight, a healthy weight, overweight, or obese. BMI for children and teens is called BMI for age. BMI for age is calculated the same way as adult BMI but the child's results are compared with growth charts. Adults can evaluate belly fat by measuring their waist size with a tape measure. Men with a waist size above 40 inches and non-pregnant women with a waist size above 35 inches may have a higher risk of health problems from obesity. If you have questions about your risk of health problems from obesity, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"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."

"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."

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3 million dollar verdict last Friday."
