Dr. Frank H. Netter MD

A celebrated surgeon and medical illustrator, born in 1906 in Manhattan, NY. He dreamed of becoming an artist, until he found his talent; Medicine. By utilizing his unusual skill set, this extraordinary man found a way to encompass both his passion and his life’s work into a legacy that to this day, inspires artists and aids students and Medical professionals alike.

The painted plates make up a personal portfolio, that is worthy of a place in any famous art gallery. Thankfully the Atlas was completed, for it was worked on up until his death in 1991.

The 5th edition of the Atlas, published in 2010 by Saunders, provides the anatomy enthusiast with a beautiful array of 624 highly detailed and clearly labeled anatomy plates.

Pros

The aim of this image collection is to enable the reader to engage themselves in learning the parts of the human body and to build a solid understanding of how each structure crosses, intersects and anastomoses with one another. In one book, the author has managed to include all the plates needed to thoroughly understand Locomotor, Organ and Neuroanatomy, without compromising quality or detail.

The chapters listed in the current edition include: The head and neck, the back and spinal cord, the thorax, the abdomen, the pelvis and perineum, the upper limb, the lower limb and cross sectional anatomy. By peeling away the human body layer by layer, Netter reveals the superficial and deep anatomical structures which are vibrantly colored for effortless differentiation.

Cons

The downside to this investment is that it lacks any kind of theory or explanations. There is no text, apart from the labels on the structures and therefore this book alone is only helpful for orientation. Also, the online plates can only be accessed once the book has been purchased, so even in the case of exclusive electronic learning, paper cannot be spared.

Conclusion

When used in combination with anatomy textbooks, theory and topographic familiarity start to develop.
