The gold standard of excellence for 25 years, Frank H. Netter, MD’s Atlas of Human Anatomy offers unsurpassed depictions of the human body in clear, brilliant detail – all from a clinician’s perspective. With its emphasis on anatomic relationships and clinically relevant views, Dr. Netter’s work provides a coherent, lasting visual vocabulary for understanding anatomy and how it applies to medicine today.
Frank H. Netter was born in New York City in 1906. He studied art at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design before entering medical school at New York University, where he received his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1931. During his student years, Dr. Netter’s notebook sketches attracted the attention of the medical faculty and other physicians, allowing him to augment his income by illustrating articles and textbooks. He continued illustrating as a sideline after establishing a surgical practice in 1933, but he ultimately opted to give up his practice in favor of a full-time commitment to art. After service in the United States Army during World War II, Dr. Netter began his long collaboration with the CIBA Pharmaceutical Company (now Novartis Pharmaceuticals). This 45-year partnership resulted in the production of the extraordinary collection of medical art so familiar to physicians and other medical professionals worldwide. Icon Learning Systems acquired the Netter Collection in July 2000 and continued to update Dr. Netter’s original paintings and to add newly commissioned paintings by artists trained in the style of Dr. Netter. In 2005, Elsevier Inc. purchased the Netter Collection and all publications from Icon Learning Systems. There are now over 50 publications featuring the art of Dr. Netter available through Elsevier Inc.
Netter’s is the go to atlas for anatomy. I am currently using this for my first year of med school and it has all of the graphics I need. These images are also often used by professors on exams. I have a pdf version of the previous edition of the atlas and compared to that, this edition is definitely worth the upgrade. The reason being the tables that I do not see in the older edition. In this edition there is a table at the end of each section of the muscles, their action, blood supply, innervation and muscle group. This is an amazing resource for a condensed version of the information you will need on exams. Friends who have the older version spent hours writing out tables of their own, flipping through endless material looking for that information.
I highly recommend this as the first line atlas that you get. You can find supplemental information on the web, or add another atlas to the collection if you feel you need one. This will be the best one to start with though.
