Go!Cards Technology – X-Ray Part 2

Are you preparing for the Radiology Board Examination and looking for consolidated, up-to-date knowledge on technical topics in radiology? Do you have to gather knowledge from a mix of sometimes very old and technically outdated books, and still feel you don't get it? Do you want to quickly and to the point review and test the most important facts before the exam to see where your knowledge stands?

Then our Go!Cards are just right for you!

Hanna Styczen · 16. August 2023

In this Go!Cards set, you will find a total of 50 questions and answers on the topic of X-Ray (Part 2) to prepare for the Radiology Board Examination. You can quickly review and test the most important facts before the exam to see where your knowledge stands.

Our Go!Cards were developed according to the current European Training Curriculum for Radiology of the European Society of Radiology (ESR).

This set includes 50 questions and answers with the following subchapters:

  • X-Ray Equipment
  • Mammography
  • X-Ray Specifics (Children and Pregnancy)

Tip: You should view the flashcards in full-screen mode, then they appear a bit larger. 🙂 We recommend using Chrome or Edge as a browser, as other browsers may display minor errors with the Go!Cards.

For the duration of your subscription (which will be automatically renewed each month if not canceled), you have full access to the Go!Cards. You can cancel your subscription at any time. Sharing your access data with third parties is, of course, not permitted (see also our general terms and conditions).
