Atlas of Human Anatomy 7th Edition

The only anatomy atlas illustrated by physicians, Atlas of Human Anatomy, 7th edition, brings you world-renowned, exquisitely clear views of the human body with a clinical perspective. In addition to the famous work of Dr. Frank Netter, you’ll also find nearly 100 paintings by Dr. Carlos A. G. Machado, one of today’s foremost medical illustrators. Together, these two uniquely talented physician-artists highlight the most clinically relevant views of the human body. In addition, more than 50 carefully selected radiologic images help bridge illustrated anatomy to living anatomy as seen in everyday practice.

Key Features of the ebook:

  • Region-by-region coverage, including Muscle Table appendices at the end of each section.
  • Large, clear illustrations with comprehensive labels not only of major structures but also of those with important relationships.
    Tabular material in separate pages and additional supporting material as a part of the electronic companion so the printed page stays focused on the illustration.


With your copy of the Frank H. Netter, MD, Atlas of Human Anatomy, you own a collection of some of the most well-known 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.

About the author:

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.

Frank H. Netter, MD, physician, and artist, died in 1991.

Reviews about the ebook:

  • Loretta Willard:
    After “loaning” other texts on illustrated human anatomy I needed to resupply my personal library. It paid off. This text replaces all that was in the now-wandering ones with more information, more technical illustrations, and in a lighter-weight volume. Much easier to carry around if you need to have a portable study area. If you get this book, don’t loan it out – it probably won’t be returned.
  • Bill Koch:
    I am not a student of medicine, but I am a communications engineer. I’ve had numerous surgeries over the years and this book is the best for seeing what the surgeons are talking about as well as helping me tell them what hurts. I can clearly see what is connected to what and why some parts hurt and why. I wish the equipment manuals I use with communication systems were this complete and clearly written and depicted. I wish I could personally thank Frank H. Netter, MD for being so precise and thorough.
  • Dinjolina:
    I love this book!
    I really do.
    holds it close to her heart:It made my dreams come true! did not.
    I actually hated it when I had to learn the basics of Anatomy in my first year of medicine.
    It was as much fun as that plastic brain I had.
    (On my desk – not as my regular brain substitution, mind you!)

    Anyway, even though –at the time- I had a nausea attack as soon as I saw it, I now praise it.
    And I was!
    It’s a good book to consult on many issues.
    It was beneficial for my Pathology classes and even for looking at formalin corpses.
    (ZOMBIE GONNA EAT ME! Erm… the wrong story)
    So, the bottom line is – if you want a universal human anatomy atlas – pick this one.

  • Stephanie:
    Had it in med school, bought this copy to have in my office. Somehow, every time I’m searching on a computer for a specific image to show a patient I can never find the right one. This book is reliably consistent.
  • Karen:
    awsome book. proven through the ages. good quality paper, good bright colors, smallish print, but you are able to get SO much information this way PER PAGE! highly recommend it for experts AND beginners. Of course, no ONE book can be everything, so consider supplementing for cross-reference of structures.
  • Robyn:
    Bought it for pharmacy school, used *a lot* during the Anatomy class & lab. It was great to study material for the Anatomy Lab Practical during our 5 lab trips to the Med School Morgue.One memory worth sharing:
    During lunch of the last of our anatomy morgue labs (Endocrine, Urinary, & Reproduction), I was at a table w/ some of my pharmacy school friends (mostly the ladies of various nationalities & home countries). One of my friends who grew up in Texas, said, “In Texas, we’ve been studying some of this (mostly repro) since sex-ed in 6th grade, so it’s not that new for us.” But my friends who grew up in places like Bangladesh, Iran, India, or Nigeria all shook their heads & said, “Not in our schools, we don’t have sex-ed there!” I was kind of amazed at how we in America take those middle-school sex-ed classes for granted, as something else you have to do, while in other countries it’s a privilege they don’t always have available until it’s either too late (reactive rather than proactive), or when they get engaged.
  • Evan:
    Natterer’s sort of a douche — can’t help signing his name to every page and spelling it out in acrostics and reminding you of his many degrees (I think in his author photo he’s wearing a T-shirt printed with his CV) — but his work is fantastic: his drawings capture the real appearance of the meat so that if/when you look at an actual body, you can identify its parts without much trouble. As importantly, he thinks carefully about point of view: the angles of his illustrations allow you to see how all the parts in the picture interrelate (the hipbone’s connected to the thighbone, now hear the words of the lord, apparently) without letting you lose track of the exact position of these bits in the overall body. All in all, a rollercoaster of action-adventure.
  • Kula:
    For pain relief and problems with certain body parts, this book was very helpful in making me understand the muscles and organs involved. When I meditate, practice humming or tapping, I visualize these body parts, organs, muscles, etc., to enable me to focus my energy on the relevant areas. A very useful book which I use for the above purpose and for knowledge on human anatomy.
  • Eli:
    This was a great atlas to reference while taking anatomy in college. The figures are detailed and very accurate. It is a great study tool, especially with the online additional resources. Online, you can look at the figure without the labels to quiz yourself, which is very handy! I highly recommend Netter’s Atlas!
  • Amy Tran:
    I am an incoming medical student and want to dedicate my summer to anatomy. I’ve only skimmed through this atlas briefly, and I could already tell how high quality the pictures are. The subject is very intimating indeed, but Netter will make it more manageable. Book arrived perfectly wrapped, so I knew it was brand new. The wrap also protected it from damage during transit. Thank you!
  • Elizabeth:
    I used this book mainly in my anatomy classes of pre-clinical years in med school. It is especially helpful when preparing for and reviewing dissections. It is certainly the most popular book among students in my program and it would be hard to imagine gross lab without its ubiquitous presence, though I personally found it sometimes lacking in content (maybe my expectations were too optimistic).
    The material is presented in a clear way, and the drawings are fairly realistic. My main complaint would be that it is sometimes difficult to identify an image that contains the structure you are looking for. I would often end up flipping through the pages in the appropriate chapter, just browsing for the structure, rather than using the index – the index is incomplete and has a lot of room for improvement.
    I also like to be able to understand the importance of a given structure when I’m learning about it – just a personal preference. Netter’s is light on explanation, so I often painted it with another anatomy book like Clinically Oriented Anatomy or Grant’s.
    Overall, Netter’s is great at what it does but is not adequate as a stand-alone anatomy book.
  • Design freak:
    I bought this book for my daughter as she is going to school to become a PA. This book is essential.
  • Nolan C. Babcock:
    Great illustrations/pictures. Like the way they progress through subjects and subjects are easy to find. Liked the hardback so much I bought this for my iPad so that I could study at school after class.
  • Nolan C. Babcock:
    Needed to replace my basic anatomy text which was forty years old and this is the one I chose. Easy to read, good illustrations. Liked it so much I purchased the kindle edition to load to my iPad.
  • Ahmed Shah:
    One of the best illustrations in human anatomy.
  • Camila Luiz:
    This book makes the anatomy of the entire body short and concise. Perfect for a med student. My only complaint is that they should use attractive people for surface anatomy.
