  • Part one FRCR exam consists of 2 components - Physics MCQ test, Radiological Anatomy MCQ tests - exams during March, June and September of each year. All information regarding the examination is available at www.rcr.ac.uk
  • Physics MCQ test:
  • This is regarded as perhaps the toughest hurdle to pass - but appropriate preparation will help to pass this exam: important aspects of preparation include - understanding the true/false MCQ test pattern; understanding physics concepts; using appropriate books such as Farr's and others; going through previous MCQs, getting help from previous candidates (including visiting www.thesrt.org website - a very useful one for the trainees).
  • Your own knowledge of physics concepts is variable - a physics teacher would certainly of help to boost the understanding.
  • Which books to read for physics?
  • FARR and ALLISY-ROBERTS - physics for medical imaging is by far the most recommended and most read one by almost every candidates; several other books / MCQs are available but it is entirely upto the individuals to select and read; having discussion with your seniors (few of them atleast) who has done the exam would be most helpful on this aspect.
  • Christenson's physics of diagnostic radiology, Review of Radiologic Physics [Paperback] - Walter Huda - Amazon; are other books that are useful understanding the physics concepts.
  • Get through First FRCR: MCQs for the Physics Module. Mair Grant, Baird Andrew, Bisset Andrew. Consulting Editor Williams Jerry, 1st Edition. The Royal Society of Medicine Press. October 2010. 156pp. £24.95. ISBN 978-1-85315-951-0.
  • Physics MCQs for the Part 1 FRCR [Paperback] Shahzad Ilyas (Author), Tomasz Matys (Author), Nasim Sheikh-Bahaei (Author), Adam K. Yamamoto (Author), Martin John Graves (Author) - Amazon.com
  • Get through series(Damien Tolan), MCQ for part one - Monika Khanna are other books to think about.
  • Anatomy MCQ test:
  • This is perhaps the easier of the two! more easier, if you have done one or two years of Radiology training. Understanding imaging anatomy, is key to the next step in interpretation, as we all know. In this section every modality from plain radiograph to PETCT can be tested. From 2013, the test pattern is going to change - instead of 20 images previously, now the test will have 100 images - one question per image - total 100 questions and you just have to write the answer in the sheet!
