Novartis: CIBA Collection Of Medical Illustrations
There are few medical illustrations as famous as those drawn by the late Frank Netter for CIBA. Novartis Medical Education has performed a favor for medical, nursing and allied health students and practitioners everywhere by committing these former book illustrations to slides.
An aerospace physician from Kunsan Air Base in the Republic of Korea writes in an Amazon.com review:
"I frequently use the Netter series, not just for my own personal reference, but to illustrate to patients the anatomy, as well as the pathology of disease processes...
...[The CIBA collection] serves as the benchmark of illustrative anatomy and pathology, and is an invaluable addition to the library of all medical personnel, both medical students and physicians alike.
Volume 3, part I of the CIBA collection of Medical Illustrations examines in great detail the upper digestive tract. There 172 slides of anatomical illustrations in this set alone. One can appreciate the depthth and detail by looking at a sampling of the list of slides that are in the set:
