Orientation Figures


Slide page showing the orientation figure in context

X-ray imaging can be disorienting to an untrained audience. These illustrations are meant to orient a jury to the location of the plaintiff’s injuries when they are being presented with medical imaging evidence.

These orientation images are part of a medical legal interactive slide presentation that is intended to help medical experts clearly communicate complex injuries to a jury, judge and other trial participants. The presentation was created as part of a team of five students in the Masters of Science in Biomedical Communications (MScBMC) program, at the University of Toronto consisting of myself, Melissa Cory, Joy Qu, Inessa Stanishevskaya, and Erin Warkentin. We worked with McLeish Orlando Critical Injury Lawyers to ensure that the presentation met industry standards for demonstrative evidence.

This presentation won the Artery Studios award for excellence in demonstrative evidence.
