Right Thoracentesis - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit is an anterior silhouette view from the neck to the waist of an African American female. The lungs, ribcage, diaphragm, liver and kidneys are shown. In the right thoracic cavity has 1300 cc of serosanguinous fluid that is represented in a pinkish color. Beside the illustration are three inserts demonstrating a thoracentesis procedure. The first is a lateral view and shows the figure from the neck to just above the waist. The skin is drawn semi-transparently so that the ribs, liver and a kidney are visible. Also, pinkish serosanguinous fluid is visible beneath the skin. Hands are shown placing a thoracentesis catheter below the eighth rib. The second insert is an enlarged cutaway view of the chest wall where a thoracentesis needle is being inserted just above the rib. The third insert is an enlargement of the first insert and focuses on thoracentesis catheter. Arrows show the direction of fluid as it is withdrawn during the procedure.
"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3
million dollar verdict last Friday."

"Our practice involves medical negligence cases exclusively. We have six
attorneys and one physician on staff. We have used Medical Legal Art's
staff for every one of our cases over the past 12 years and have found their
services to be extraordinary. The transformation of medical records into
powerful graphic images has without fail been handled expertly,
expeditiously and effectively translating into superb results for our
clients, both in the courtroom and in settlement. Every case can benefit
from their excellent work and we unqualifiedly recommend their services.
They are the best!"

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical
demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical
injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our
client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed
the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.
We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of
the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative
evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have
afforded to have been without."
Todd J. Kenyon
Attorney at Law
"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

depositions, arbitrations, mediations, settlement conferences, mock jury
trials and for use in the courtroom. We do not provide legal or medical
