A helpful suggestion.
Many things led up to my decision to make the Video Atlas, but the immediate cause was a conversation that happened in the fall of 1993. I had just given a clinical correlation lecture to our medical students about the importance of anatomy to me in my career as a surgeon.
One student, Suzanne l'Ecuyer, said, "You can't imagine how helpful it would be if you could make videos as beautiful as the slides you just showed us." Overhearing her, one of our senior anatomists said "Bob, you've been talking about doing that for years, it's time you did it." Within two weeks I had committed myself to making a major series of anatomical videos for students.
