Correct vs. Incorrect Iridotomies - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit features two sets of images comparing normal anatomy with the post-operative condition. These two sets of images compare the correct placement of the iridotomies at the 10:30 and 1:30 positions with the incorrect placement of the iridotomies in this case at 11:30 and 12:30.
Correct Iridotomy. The anterior view shows that the placement of the iridotomies at 10:30 and 1:30 place the holes beyond the peripheral edge of the intraocular lens. Therefore the iridotomies are not obstructed. The sagittal view shows how these holes placed in the iris allow flow of aqueous into the anterior chamber.
Incorrect Iridotomy. The anterior view shows that the placement of the iridotomies at 11:30 and 12:30 do NOT place the holes beyond the peripheral edge of the lens. Therefore the iridotomy holes are obstructed by the lens. The sagittal view reinforces this issue by showing that the iridotomy holes are obstructed and flow is NOT re-established.
"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."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did
with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both
detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them
and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the
lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to
say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.
The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have
done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with
your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical
Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my
last minute revisions."

"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."
