Fluoroscopy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: X-ray images are like photos of the inside of your body. But X-ray videos can be made as well. They're made during a procedure called fluoroscopy. One reason your doctor may give you a fluoroscopy exam is to find out if you have certain diseases, such as problems in your digestive tract. A second reason your doctor may use fluoroscopy is to perform a procedure such as a spinal tap. A third reason is to find, locate, and identify a foreign object in your body. There are several types of fluoroscopy machines. A fluoroscope may be fixed in place in a special shielded room. Or it may be a portable machine that can be moved to you if needed. A computed tomography, or CT scan machine can also be used as a fluoroscope to see slices through the body as the images are taken. Before a fluoroscopy procedure, you may be given a contrast substance. It may be in a drink, a paste, a pill, or an injection. During the procedure, you will lie or stand on an X-ray table. An X-ray tube will be aimed at the body part to be examined. Then an X-ray beam will pass through a part of the fluoroscope that shapes the beam to just the area of your body being studied. This helps reduce your exposure to X-rays. After the beam passes through your body, it will be converted into a video seen on a monitor screen. If you receive a contrast substance, it will make the structure stand out better on the screen. If you have any questions about fluoroscopy, talk to your doctor.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"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."
