More About Frank H. Netter

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Frank H. Netter was born in New York City in 1906. He studied art at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design before entering medical school at New York University, where he received his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1931. During his student years, Dr. Netter's notebook sketches attracted the attention of the medical faculty and other physicians, allowing him to augment his income by illustrating articles and textbooks. He continued illustrating as a sideline after establishing a surgical practice in 1933, but he ultimately opted to give up his practice in favor of a full-time commitment to art. After service in the United States Army during World War II, Dr. Netter began his long collaboration with the CIBA Pharmaceutical Company (now Novartis Pharmaceuticals). This 45-year partnership resulted in the production of the extraordinary collection of medical art so familiar to physicians and other medical professionals worldwide.
Icon Learning Systems acquired the Netter Collection in July 2000 and continued to update Dr. Netter's original paintings and to add newly commissioned paintings by artists trained in the style of Dr. Netter. In 2005, Elsevier Inc. purchased the Netter Collection and all publications from Icon Learning Systems. There are now over 50 publications featuring the art of Dr. Netter available through Elsevier Inc.
Dr. Netter's works are among the finest examples of the use of illustration in the teaching of medical concepts. The 13-book Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations, which includes the greater part of the more than 20,000 paintings created by Dr. Netter, became and remains one of the most famous medical works ever published. The Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy, first published in 1989, presents the anatomic paintings from the Netter Collection. Now translated into 16 languages, it is the anatomy atlas of choice among medical and health professions students the world over.
The Netter illustrations are appreciated not only for their aesthetic qualities, but, more importantly, for their intellectual content. As Dr. Netter wrote in 1949 "clarification of a subject is the aim and goal of illustration. No matter how beautifully painted, how delicately and subtly rendered a subject may be, it is of little value as a medical illustration if it does not serve to make clear some medical point.? Dr. Netter's planning, conception, point of view, and approach are what inform his paintings and what make them so intellectually valuable.

Reviews - What do customers think about Interactive Atlas of Human Anatomy 3.0 (Netter Basic Science)?

no problem with mine  Oct 21, 2006
It is only accessible through your cd-rom, unless you know how to create an iso, and then run the iso using a program such as daemon tools, but i had no problem with my cd-rom. it did not run constantly, only when you were searching etc. Excellent pictures, easy to use.

Far better than the book  Jun 13, 2006
This is an excellent piece of software. If I'm near a computer, I do not use my paper version of Netter's Atlas at all. Here is why:

1) Searchable Index. Need to find a particular structure fast? Just type in the word, and all entries will come up in a list. If you click on the entry in the list, it will display the plate with the structure's name and pointer highlighted. (This feature alone is worth the purchase price.) No more flipping back and forth between the index and the plates.

2) You can remove labels entirely or expose labels on rollover. Memorize without having to physically cover anything up.

3) Click on a caption to highlight its pointer. No more following thin lines to the drawings.

4) Create custom study guides. It's as if you cut out the pages you need for a certain section, and covered up all the labels you don't care about.

5) Custom made tests. You can select slides of your choice, and only certain labels on those slides, and create a multiple choice test (name -> structure) or (structure -> name)

It is true that the program spins the CD-ROM drive on every operation. This can wear the drive out. However, there is a simple solution to this. Make an ISO image of the CD and mount it as a drive. It is roundabout, but it works. And as a bonus, the program runs much faster.

So I advise anyone who has not yet bought the paper atlas and who likes studying at the computer to buy this software.
Great traveling companion  Mar 9, 2006
The resolution is not great, but it still works in many situations. Am I glad that I have the book at home? You bet. But I travel and teach a great deal, and this CD lives in my laptop. I love the searchability and thumbnail views.
This CD will ruin your pc  Nov 15, 2005
Public spirited as I am, I'd like to warn everybody about the disastrous CD, "Netter's Interactive Atlas of Human Anatomy, v. 3.0", which set me back forty bucks and is useless.

It's not the content, but the delivery. The eighth grade programmers who Elsevier hired to design the disk made it runnable only from the CD, not the pc hard drive. You can't copy the files to the pc, tweak the registry, redirect the D: drive with a SUBST command, or any of that. The program probably looks for a GUID in the CD boot block, which can't be faked on the C: drive.

The disk is designed for heavy interaction (note the "Interactive" in the title!), but the program doesn't seem to cache anything. Every time you click something, the program hits the CD drive. If you click away like you're supposed to, the motor keeps running. In other words, your CD motor will run the entire time you're using this disk. If you're looking for a way to burn out your motor, this disk is it.

I called the programming group in charge of it and spoke to Customer Disservice. The guy was surprisingly candid and said they had received this complaint several times before. Well, duh!

I didn't get into the content at all, because I just couldn't stand the sound of my motor running that long. Note, however, that the reviews of the previous version of this disk are overwhelmingly negative, based on content.

In general, I have found that the CDs which accompany textbooks are a waste. Netter's Interactive Atlas of Human Anatomy v. 3.0 is no exception.
Do not buy.  Nov 2, 2005
This produt is not usable for much. It does border to that I want to ask for my money back.

Sorry netter, nice pictures, but sub pare presentation!
