Summary

Examinations may not be the most popular aspect of medical training but they are an essential part of our education system and make an important contribution to the very high standard of medicine in the United Kingdom. Structured testing is an objective and effective method of testing knowledge. This is especially true in the field of radiology, as it is possible to combine questions with images, thus bringing this form of testing closer to the reality of everyday life than is possible in many other medical specialities. Dr Aidan Shaw, Dr Benjamin Smith and Dr David Howlett have produced an outstanding book, which combines searching questions, testing important aspects of radiological anatomy, with excellent images that clearly demonstrate the findings. The questions are clear, succinct and readable and the quality of the images is superb. I believe that this book will prove very popular with radiologists preparing for examinations and will make revision (almost) a pleasure!
