Barium Enema - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: A barium enema examination or lower GI series is an x-ray procedure used to visualize the interior anatomy of your large intestine or colon and rectum. Your digestive tract consists of the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, and the rectum. Food travels down the digestive tract in this order. The main functions of the colon are to absorb water into the body, change liquid waste material into solid waste material known as feces, and store feces until enough accumulates to be passed from the anus as a bowel movement. Abnormal conditions may develop in your colon, such as colon cancer, polyps, outpouchings of the colon wall called diverticula, ulcers, or narrowed areas known as strictures. If you develop unexplained bleeding, abdominal pain, or change in your bowel habits, your doctor may recommend you get a barium enema examination. Before the procedure, you'll be asked to lie down on an x-ray table. A lubricated tube will be carefully inserted into your rectum. A bag containing barium will be attached to the tube and the barium will be allowed to flow into your colon. When enough barium has flowed into your colon, you'll be asked to try very hard not to expel any of it while x-rays are taken. A tiny balloon attached to the tubing that carries the barium may be inflated to prevent any barium from leaking out during the exam. While the x-ray pictures are being taken, you'll be asked to roll from side to side or to stand up. This lets the barium flow to different areas so that sufficient x-ray images can be obtained of your entire colon. After many x-ray pictures are taken, you'll be given a bedpan or taken to a bathroom and asked to expel as much of the barium as possible. A few more x-rays may be taken after you have passed most of the barium out of your colon because the small remaining amount of barium clearly illuminates the outline of your colon. After your barium enema, you can go home. You will most likely be able to resume your normal diet. Most radiologists instruct patients to increase their fluid intake for a period of time to be certain all of the barium is passed. You will likely notice more gas than usual, and see barium in the next several bowel movements that you pass.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."
