Editorial Reviews for this title:
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.
