In this Go!Cards set, you will find a total of 49 questions and answers on the topic of Radiation Protection 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 49 questions and answers with the following subchapters:
- Radiation Protection in Clinical Routine
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.
