Screening for Colorectal Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Screening for colorectal cancer means looking for signs of cancer in your large intestine before you have symptoms. Screening can help find cancer at an early stage. This can make treating it easier because the cancer might not have spread. Screening for colorectal cancer is recommended for everyone beginning at age 50. You may need screening earlier and more often if you or your family has a history of colorectal cancer or diseases that inflame your bowel. Some tests screen test for colorectal cancer by looking inside your large intestine. These tests include sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, and colonography. A sigmoidoscopy views the lower third of your large intestine using a camera on the end of a flexible tube. The tube is inserted through your anus into your large intestine to look for polyps and other signs of cancer . A colonoscopy also views your large intestine using a similar camera but it looks along the entire length of your large intestine for polyps or other signs of cancer. A colonography, also known as virtual colonoscopy, uses CT scans of your large intestine. A computer uses the scans to make a three-dimensional view inside your large intestine to look for signs of cancer. Other tests screen for colorectal cancer by looking at your stools or feces. Fecal blood test look for traces of blood in stool samples. These tests are often done in combination with the sigmoidoscopy. Blood in your stool may be a sign of polyps in your colon or cancer. However, stool blood may have other causes that aren't cancer. Talk to your healthcare provider about what your test results mean. In a stool DNA test, a stool sample is checked for abnormal DNA from polyps or cancer. If you have questions about these tests or your test results, talk to your doctor.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"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."

"You and your company are wonderful. Your service, turnaround time, quality and price were better than I could have asked for. Please add me to your long list of satisfied customers."

"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."
