This iPad app is the complete set of the 535 Plates from the 7th edition Atlas of Human Anatomy—illustrated by master medical illustrator Frank H. Netter, MD, and his primary successor, Carlos Machado, MD—enhanced with a suite of quizzing and customization features. Tap “Info” buttons to review key facts for major muscles, nerves, and other structures. Open Plate Settings to take label quizzes, turn lines on/off, add notes, and view related plates. Use Bookmarks and Highlighter to personalize Plates. Locate anatomic structures and views quickly through Search (key word or plate number) or Browse by Region or System. Register your app and get over 100 additional plates from earlier editions of the Atlas for free!
I love this app version of Netter’s. I tend to prefer physical textbooks and atlases but this app has two huge advantages for me over the traditional print version. 1 - The ability to turn off labels. I think the numerous black lines and labels in most versions of Netter’s, though obviously useful, clutter the images and detract from the aesthetics of the original paintings. The app has the ability to show clean, unlabeled images, traditional labels, and pins you can tap on for structure names, which I prefer to the labels. 2 - The ability to search for a structure. You can search for a structure and scroll though all the plates that show it, with the label highlighted! Very useful feature to see multiple views of a single structure. Netter’s is still the gold standard of anatomy atlases for physicians and surgeons, and this app is a genuinely improved way to view the original beautiful illustrations. I hope the developers continue to keep it updated.
This app is very expensive and does not even have all of the plates my Netter’s book does.
