For years, Dr. Frank Netter toiled to create clear, concise and useable medical illustrations, first for the Clinical Symposia and then for the Ciba Collection. Medical specialists have come to depend upon his light touch and fine sense of detail for their studies of gross anatomy since 1948. Surgeons and nurses appreciate the balance Netter struck between simplification and complexity, and his views mirror surgical techniques. This new edition, published since Netter's passing under the aegis of Arthur Dalley, has been updated and revised, and the surgical views have been made even cleaner. Several new plates have been added, all rendered "in the Netter style." There is no text, only well-positioned labels and multi-color diagrams. The book's index and overall organization is superb. If you're studying or practicing medicine, this oversized volume should have a place on your bookshelf.
Fatbrain reviewed this book and the publisher's summary, and found that the summary accurately reflects the book's contents.
Besides the bound version of Netter's Atlas, there is also a CD-ROM edition, Interactive Atlas of Human Anatomy, Version 2.0, featuring the same excellent images. The pre-med or nursing school student will appreciate Human Anatomy and Physiology and Clinically Oriented Anatomy, on which Dalley collaborated.
