Frank Netter Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy A Systems Approach Eighth 



The illustrations comprising the Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy were painted by physician-artists, Frank H. Netter, MD, and Carlos Machado, MD. Dr. Netter was a surgeon and Dr.  Machado is a
cardiologist. Their clinical insights and perspectives have informed
their approaches to these works of art.

The collective expertise of
the anatomists, educators, and clinicians guiding the selection,
arrangement, labeling, and creation of the illustrations ensures the
accuracy, relevancy, and educational power of this outstanding
You have a copy of the Systems Approach 8th edition with
English-language terminology. This is a new organization, available
for the first time.

Traditionally, the Netter Atlas has only been
offered as a regionally organized Atlas.

This arrangement is still
available (with English or Latin terminology options), but this new
systems organization reflects the needs of a growing number of
programs that approach anatomy within a body systems context. In
all cases, the same beautiful and instructive Art Plates and Table
information are included.

More than 20 new illustrations have been added and over 30 art
modifications have been made throughout this edition.

Highlights include new views of the temporal and infratemporal fossa, pelvic
fascia, nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, plus multiple new
perspectives of the heart, a cross-section of the foot, enhancedsurface anatomy plates, and overviews of many body systems. In
these pages you will find the most robust illustrated coverage to
date for modern clinical anatomy courses.

 In creating an atlas such as this, it is important to achieve a
happy medium between complexity and simplification. If the
pictures are too complex, they may be difficult and confusing to
read; if oversimplified, they may not be adequately definitive or
may even be misleading.

I have therefore striven for a middlecourse of realism without the cler of confusing minutiae.

I hope that the students and members of the medical and allied
professions will find the illustrations readily understandable, yet
instructive and useful.
At one point, the publisher and I thought it might be nice to
include a foreword by a truly outstanding and renowned anatomist,
but there are so many in that category that we could not make a

We did think of men like Vesalius, Leonardo da Vinci,
William Hunter, and Henry Gray, who of course are unfortunately
unavailable, but I do wonder what their comments might have been
about this atlas.
