|Brain Surgery - Intracerebral Tumor with Blockage of CSF Circulation - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
|This stock medical exhibit shows an intracerebral tumor with blockage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulation in a series of illustrations. The first illustration shows the normal anatomy of the brain in a coronal section, including the cerebrum, superior sinus, lateral ventricle, third ventricle and optic tract. The second illustration shows normal anatomy of the brain in a mid-sagittal view, including some of the previously mentioned structures and the pineal gland, cerebral aqueduct, fourth ventricle, subarachnoid space of the spinal cord, and the pathway of CSF circulation. The third illustration shows the actual condition in a coronal section of the brain, including the dilation of the ventricles from accumulated CSF, blockage of CSF circulation from the third ventricle by a tumor and a compromised optic tract due to raised intracranial pressure. The fourth illustration shows the actual condition of the brain in a mid-sagittal section, including the blocked CSF circulation from the third ventricle by the tumor. The fifth illustration shows the location of the ventriculoperitoneal shunt in a coronal section of the brain. The sixth illustration is an enlarged view of the fifth, showing the drainage of CSF through a cannula inserted into the lateral ventricle, the location of the intracerebral tumor and the decompression of the optic tract.|
|What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
|"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
|"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
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

extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use
Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

|"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
