Overview

The ultimate anatomy atlas for medical study, clinical reference, and patient education, this updated masterpiece offers 534 of Netter's own accurate, clear and beautifully rendered illustrations along with eight Netter-style drawings rendered by Carlos A.G. Machado, MD. Netter's incomparable medical art and artistry reflects his personal belief in the power of the visual image to teach without overwhelming the student with dense, confusing text. "To clarify rather than intimidate" remains the distinctive and effective Netter approach — and it's been working since the publication of the first edition in 1989.

This masterwork has trained over 1,000,000 medical and health-science students since its first release in 1989.

Updated with over 200 revised Netter illustrations, this new edition of the classic human anatomy atlas presents a total of 534 of Netter's own accurate, clear and precisely rendered illustrations along with 8 new Netter-style, surface anatomy drawings by Carlos A.G. Machado, MD.

This extraordinary new edition takes a major step forward to include surface anatomy and radiographic images to give a fuller, more integrated understanding of human anatomy. The index is expanded and improved, the references are updated, and a number of images are revised to reflect current knowledge. "To clarify rather than intimidate" continues to be the distinctive and effective Netter approach.

· New Surface Anatomy Images - Each section begins with a surface anatomy plate to draw attention to the surface features that anticipate the underlying anatomy as well as highlight the value of careful observation in clinical medicine.

· New Radiographic Images - For further investigation into anatomical detail

· New and Revised Anatomical Images - Some plates were selected from Netter's Collection of Medical Illustrations 13-volume masterwork. Other images have been slightly revised and updated to reflect current knowledge.

· Expanded and improved index and updated references

Atlas of Human Anatomy, Student Edition 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.

First, DON'T buy Gray's and DON'T listen to people who talk about errors in the text--the errors WERE in the 2nd edition, but the publisher fixed them for the 3rd edition. This book will get you through all your A&P, and is worth every penny.

From the day I bought this book as a first year medical student, 16 years ago, I have referred to this book more than any other text book I own. Netter's illustrations helped me get through medical school, internship, residency and is still my most valued book. No medical library can be complete unless this book is present. A MUST have.

This is a must-have book for any medical student. The comment that was made in a prior review about Gray's anatomy being better is laughable.

Whoever said to get Gray's...don't listen to them. That book is VERY outdated and way to complicated. Netter's Anatomy is the best book to use for Medical School Gross Anatomy. This book is a must! Clemente is also good, but most of my classmates still prefer Netter!

It is decent, it does some great illustrations, has a few errors but it will get you through medical school. A much better book is Gray's Anatomy and blows Netter out of the water. Spend the extra $100 its worth it.

I would like to say this book is great. I took an intro to anatomy during my summer internship at a Texas Medical School and I only finished freshman year. The book is great at helping one see the parts of the body in detail

Netter's Atlas is the definitive atlas for beginning, intermediate, and mastering study of the human anatomy. I started anatomy without Dr. Netter's book and I did not understand anatomy too well. Once I got it, things began coming together so much easier. The drawings are done so well and accurately. I still reference my Netter's atlas today and I've been done with the course for a while.
