Introduction

A sound knowledge of anatomy is crucial to the practice of radiology and amongst one of the hardest subjects for trainees to grasp. It requires not only a good memory for detail but also spatial awareness.

This book is not intended to be a primary revision tool but rather as an aid to help you identify gaps in anatomical knowledge and areas for further study. The best time to use this book is in the weeks running up to the examination after having read through a good anatomy textbook and atlas.

Some of our top tips on performing well at the examination include the following:

Go quickly! Many candidates find themselves pushed for time and some don’t even manage to finish the paper. You are only given about 3.5 minutes per image so if an area of anatomy is not immediately obvious to you, skip it and come back to it afterwards.

Remember to be as specific as you can for each question. For example, label ‘head of right humerus bone’ and not just ‘humerus’. This can lose you easy marks! (If you find you don’t have any time to recheck your answers at the end of the examination then at least go over and make sure you have labelled the correct side for all your answers).

Have a go at all the questions even if you aren’t entirely sure. Remember there is no negative marking in this examination.

The syllabus for the anatomy module is found on the Royal College of Radiologists website. It is important to read this document prior to the examination to guide your revision. For example it is important to know that nuclear medicine and endocavity ultrasound imaging is not examined. This will save you time when revising.

And lastly, on a practical note, ensure you leave plenty of time to reach the examination centre, wear something comfortable (you are allowed to wear jeans and informal attire), bring something to write with and most of all do not forget your letter of registration and photographic identity otherwise you will not be allowed to sit the examination!

Good luck! We hope you find this revision aid useful and welcome any comments for improvements.

About the Examination

The anatomy module of the FRCR Part 1 examination was introduced in March 2010 by the Royal College of Radiologists and is held three times a year in March, June and September. It lasts for 75 minutes and comprises of 20 images each with five questions. Most questions ask the candidate to label structures within the image, however there are also questions regarding normal anatomical variants, the blood supply to a certain structure (e.g. blood supply to the femoral head) or the normal measurements of parts of anatomy (e.g. maximum diameter of the common bile duct).

The images are viewed on a 19 inch Apple Mac computer screen using the Osirix software system. The brightness and contrast of the 20 images can be altered, however the images are already optimised so that this is not necessary. In addition, candidates are allowed to choose the order in which to view the images and may go back and change their answers during the examination. If you find this all rather daunting - don’t worry - you will be given a short briefing and the chance to perform two practice (unmarked) questions before the examination. All answers are written within a paper booklet and can be filled in with pen or pencil.
