|This stock medical exhibit depicts a post-accident neck fracture with spinal stabilization surgery and a halo device in a series of illustrations. The first illustration shows a lateral view of the head with the halo device installed, including a mid-sagittal view of the area of injury, the skull, brain and cervical vertebra ghosted within the head. The second illustration is an enlargement of part of the halo device, showing a pin from the device screwed into the skull. The third and fourth illustrations are mid-sagittal x-rays of the injured area, showing a fracture of the odontoid process of C2. The fifth illustration shows the first step in the procedure to install the halo device in an anterior view of the head; four pins are drilled into the skull. The sixth illustration shows the securing of the halo ring to the cranial pins. The seventh illustration shows the attachment of the halo device to the vest unit using four rods. The head and neck are completely immobilized.|

|"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and
I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical
illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require
medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

|"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."

|"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
