Lumbar Disc Herniation
Our Hyper-Realistic Animations can Walk an Audience through even the most Complex Surgeries
We’re able to fade animation between an MRI or CT scan to provide legitimacy and realism to our renderings. This enforces in the minds of the viewers that what they’re seeing is fact-based, not just a random idea of what a spinal cord could look like.
When excessive pressure is applied to the vertebral body, the disc will burst. This causes pressure to be placed on the spinal cord, which stimulates pain receptors for the brain to process, which results in enormous pain.
This animation gives an accurate depiction of the nervous system, and highlights in red the path that the stimuli take. This allows the viewer to understand a little bit more about the nervous system, and emphasizes how painful such an injury could be.
Most of modern society receives their information via visual and written media, if not exclusively visual. For some people, this extends to learning to the extent that the only way the person can learn is if they’re able to see it with their eyes. This presents a problem for the way most trials transpire. At least a few members of the jury are likely to consider themselves visual learners and will struggle to keep up with the vast amounts of complex information that’s being presented.
The best solution to this problem is to include a visual aid. Allan Barsky said in his book, Clinicians in Court:
“As noted throughout this volume, the purpose of providing evidence at a trial is to educate the judge or jury about the facts in a case. As the saying goes, “Seeing is believing,” so using visual aids in courtroom presentations can have a critical impact on the decision makers. Seeing a torn piece of clothes may be more convincing than just hearing about it.”

Our cutting-edge animation technology paired with some of the most talented medical experts in the country has allowed us to become industry leaders in creating medical illustrations. We have a team of certified medical illustrators, medical practitioners, and 3D modeling engineers that can recreate any kind of surgery or injury in astonishing detail.
We’ve worked with some of the top attorneys and expert witnesses in the country, and have produced animations so precise, that they have been admitted as substantive evidence, not just demonstrative. A neutral expert witness in a particularly challenging case testified that our animation was exactly what he saw when he performed surgery on the plaintiff after the defendant misdiagnosed the plaintiff.
Medical Imaging Modeled in 3D with Perfection
“Over 2 decades I have used several animation firms nationwide to prepare medical animations based upon diagnostic imaging, e.g., x-rays, CT’s, and MRI’s. The work product was always acceptable, but never up to state-of-the-art standards for cutting-edge animation – until now.
I reached out to Fox-AE after receiving an email from their Marketing Director. The email included a link to an exemplar animation. After viewing the animation, I knew that I wanted to give Fox-AE a chance. I arranged to have the Fox-AE animation engineer fly in to meet our neuroradiology expert and review the MRI together. From there, the engineer worked with the expert to ensure that the animation was an exact match with the MRI. The result was stunning in every respect. The precision with which the animator accurately captured the MRI was without peer. Every person who has seen the animation is struck by its detail and flow. First-rate in every respect. Use Fox-AE whenever possible – your client and the jury will thank you. Opposing counsel will not.”
