the final frcr part a examination is daunting to prepare for as it requires an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, disease, differential diagnoses and applied radiology practice. this book has been compiled to ease the revision process by presenting the requisite core knowledge for each of the six system-based modules, namely cardiothoracic and vascular, musculoskeletal and trauma, gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary, genitourinary, gynaecology and breast, paediatrics, and central nervous system and head and neck. each chapter has been authored by recent ex am candidates and in turn edited by radiology consultants with subspecialty expertise in that field, to ensure focused and succinct coverage of high-yield exam topics. only the essential facts are presented, selected entirely on the basis of the scope of remembered past questions. this should speed up the revision process by reducing time spent searching through large textbooks and journals. being revision notes, the content is designed to make the knowledge-finding process easy for the stressed candidate. each topic is presented in a concise manner and exhaustive lists of differential diagnoses have been restricted to those that most often get tested. for ease of reading, the main reference sources have been listed in a general bibliography at the very end of the book rather than cited in the text. although primarily aimed at radiology trainees, this book will also be useful to physicians, surgeons, medical students and anyone with an interest in radiology.
