Malpractice suits are typically difficult to understand because of the medical jargon and body scans used as evidence. A courtroom exhibit effectively visualizes how surgery may have gone wrong or how a misdiagnosis caused harm to a patient. These medical courtroom exhibits are accurate because they are made directly from the data collected from diagnostic tests.
A high-resolution CT or MRI scan provides internal images of a person and when broken down, these images, layer-by-layer, create a precise anatomical replica. Replicas of abnormalities such as tumors, fractures, cysts, and the like have staggering accuracy. WhiteClouds, approached by prosecuting and defense attorneys alike, creates true-to-life medical exhibits for use in the courtroom.
An attorney approached WhiteClouds to create a courtroom exhibit highlighting an area of his client's spine. The client had undergone a surgery where the surgeon improperly attached hardware to his cervical spine. The surgical mistake caused the medical device to dig into the man's esophagus. A trained medical professional could see the resulting damage in the medical imagery, but it was difficult for the attorney to get the jury to understand what the experts could. The true-to-life exhibit, created by WhiteClouds, brought a more in-depth understanding to the courtroom.
Another malpractice case involved a man with a mass in his brain. The man suffered an intense seizure and became afflicted by multiple other debilitating health issues. Several years before his health issues escalated, the man had visited his doctor with headache complaints. The doctor ran a diagnostic scan and found a small mass in his brain. The professional advice of the doctor was that the abnormality was not a cause for concern. When the man had the seizure, that mass had doubled in size. The attorney effectively presented the case with comparison models, one of the mass when it was small and another of the mass when it doubled in size.
With high-resolution medical scans, skilled designers and 3D modeling software, WhiteClouds creates effective courtroom exhibits that demonstrate what is otherwise difficult to visualize.
