Test yourself

Chest X-ray OSCE practise

Abdominal X-ray OSCE practise

Test yourself quizzes

Radiology Masterclass would be very grateful for any feedback about these sample ‘test yourself’ X-ray OSCEs. More scenarios are currently being compiled.

Before using this section to practise your Radiology OSCE technique you may find it useful to read OSCE presentation tips and OSCE scoring and check lists

For each OSCE you are given a minute to read some relevant clinical information before being asked to view an image.

If you are practising in a group, one person could act as examiner, one as examinee, and others as observers.

You will then be asked questions about the image or about the clinical scenario.

At the end of each OSCE there will be discussion regarding how you would be expected to perform at medical finals.

    Mammography Reduces Late-Stage Breast Cancer said:

    A study published in Cancer found that since health care providers began using mammography more than 30 years ago, the number of people diagnosed with advanced-stage breast cancer has decreased by 37 percent.

    Using data from the National Institutes of Health SEER database, researchers from the University of Michigan looked at early-stage and late-stage breast cancer diagnoses between 1977 and 1979, before mammography became a standard screening tool, and then again for diagnoses between 2007 and 2009.

    The study’s authors also took into account that since 1977, breast cancer diagnoses have increased about 1.3 percent per year. Using this annual percentage change and the data from the 1970s, they estimated how many early- and late-stage diagnoses there would be 30 years later. They then compared the results to the actual number of diagnoses between 2007 and 2009.

    The study found that the actual number of advanced-stage breast cancer diagnoses decreased by 37 percent from 1977 to 2009, while the number of early-stage diagnoses increased 48 percent. The study also found that since mammography became the standard of care, there has been a 9 percent decrease in invasive breast cancer.

    Researchers said the results suggest that mammograms are finding more breast cancers in their early stages, when they are typically easier to treat and less likely to be terminal. The authors said the drop in late-stage diagnoses proves the benefits of annual mammography screening.
