Medical illustrations have been with us for thousands of years. A medical illustrator is a professional artist with advanced education in both the life sciences and art. Talent in drawing of course is an integral part of illustration.

I remember Frank H. Netter and his medical illustrations in the medical textbooks I used in medical school. I can still see his signature below his drawings in my mind's eye. His illustrations were very helpful and valuable in understanding anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. Frank Netter was an American surgeon and a celebrated medical illustrator, an artist. During his lifetime, he produced more than 4000 renderings of human anatomy, physiology, and pathology.

He educated doctors the world over. His award-winning Atlas More Details of Human Anatomy, published in 1989 by Ciba, is today the most popular and best-selling anatomy atlas in the English language. He called it his “Sistine Chapel.” He was a Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine. He died in September 1991.
