RAB would like to take this opportunity to remind you of our new project:
"The Film Bank Quiz"
Each month, a new case will be featured, consisting of a clinical history, corresponding imaging and a series of questions. The selected cases aim to illustrate interesting and/or important radiological findings and will cover a broad range of body systems, serving as a stimulus for further learning. At the end of each case, suggestions for further reading will also be provided.
From August, registrants in developing nations who undertake the quiz every month over a 12 month period will have their quiz responses assessed and will be in the running for prizes; to be awarded twice yearly to those who score the highest.
Also from August (case 4) a CPD certificate worth one half point will be issued for completion of each quiz.
