Summary

In 2010 the Royal College of Radiologists reintroduced the anatomy component of the FRCR Part 1 examination. The primary aim of this book is to provide trainee radiologists with a focused and invaluable revision aid when preparing for this exam. Its utility is not just limited to radiologists, however, and other groups such as radiographers and medical students will also find the detailed images and descriptions helpful to their studies. This book was written to be complementary to existing formal anatomy texts, and is intended to be used in conjunction with them.

The ten mock examinations within this book have been designed to closely conform with the new syllabus set out by the RCR. Each exam is laid out and structured in the same way as the actual papers, ensuring that readers will gain familiarity with both the content and the style of the examination. By the end of the book, readers will have encountered every imaging modality and the majority of cases covered in the exam itself. The answer sections include detailed explanations of the relevant anatomy, along with helpful learning tips and clinical applications.

The anatomy syllabus is available on the college website and should be studied closely. It is broadly divided into four categories: head and neck; thorax; abdomen and pelvis; and musculoskeletal system. Candidates can expect the examination to have roughly equal proportions from each category in the examination.
