Book Preface

With your copy of the Frank H. Netter, MD, Atlas of Human Anatomy, you own a collection of some of the most wellknown depictions of human anatomy in medicine and healthcare. In addition to the famous work of Dr. Netter, with your copy of this 7th edition, you also have access to nearly 100 painted pieces by Carlos A. G. Machado, MD, one of the foremost medical illustrators working today. Dr. Machado’s contributions to the Atlas highlight important views of anatomy that have become more clinically relevant in recent years— anatomic views that have resulted from improved dissection techniques and modern imaging. In addition, you have access to more than 50 carefully selected radiologic images that help bridge the idealized illustrated anatomy with living anatomy viewed in the clinic.

While numerous updates have been made to the illustrated plates and tables to make them easier to learn from, the most significant changes to this edition include:

Introductory Section

To fulfill the requests from many students and fans of Netter’s Atlas, we have added a new opening section containing several overview plates. These plates provide the very first head-to-toe views in the Atlas of Human Anatomy!

Clinical Tables

The Atlas of Human Anatomy is the only anatomy atlas illustrated by physicians. Dr. Netter was a surgeon and Dr. Machado is a cardiologist. The views of anatomy in this atlas have always reflected a clinical perspective. In line with this clinical focus, and in congruence with integrated curricula in health and medicine, tables at the end of each regional section highlight the most commonly injured structures, as well as other structures with high clinical significance and commonly covered in anatomy courses. The tables provide students with quick summaries, organized by body system, and note where to best view these key structures in the illustrated plates.

New Art Plates by Dr. Machado

For this edition alone, over 25 new illustrations have been painted by Dr. Machado. Suggestions for new plates of additional anatomic views and concepts are submitted by students, faculty, anatomists, physicians, and others. Sometimes suggestions are solicited at major anatomy conferences with a “What Should Carlos Paint Next?” idea box. Decisions around which new plates are prioritized and given space in a new edition come from discussions among consulting editors. The new plates for this edition are largely those that portray structures with clinical significance (Fascial Columns of the Neck, Deep Veins of the Leg, Hip Bursae, and Vasculature of the Prostate) or those that are difficult to visualize (Infratemporal Fossa)—and, of course, the new additions created for the introductory section.

Terminology Updates

The Atlas of Human Anatomy uses terminology accepted (in Göttingen, Germany, on September 24, 2016) by the Federative International Programme on Anatomical Terminologies and published as updates to the 1998 Terminologia Anatomica. Numerous updates to terminology have been made, so in select cases, former terminology has been included within parentheses to assist with the transition.

New Radiologic Images

Over 50 radiologic images—some completely new views and others replacing existing views using newer imaging tools—are included in this edition. Images have been selected based on their utility to students studying gross anatomy.

Your Atlas of Human Anatomy content has been updated, created, and overseen by a team of dedicated and passionate consulting editors, with the help of a stellar international advisory board, and guided by the feedback of many students, educators, anatomists, and clinicians that love Netter’s Atlas.
