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 Arrows show the direction of fluid as it is withdrawn during the procedure.

"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."

"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

"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."
