Netter’s Anatomy Atlas for iPad

JAMA. 2012;307(5):513-514. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.64.

Few authors achieve “superstar” status in medicine, and even fewer do so as medical illustrators. The work of Frank Netter (1906-1991) resonates with all students of medicine, from those considering the field to those old enough to remember eagerly anticipating the next publication of a work by Netter. As iconic as the Netter illustrations are, that level of recognition and quality is not sufficient to guarantee the value of a book or iPad application, and those attributes set a high bar of expectation for any product. In this case, the application seems to live up to those expectations.
