What are the indications for necrosectomy? How you perform an EUA for acute peri-anal sepsis? What do you understand by the term Early Goal-Directed Therapy (EGDT)? Remember: this is a consultant's exam, and giving a range of options is not good enough. You must tell the examiner what you as a consultant are going to do. The FRCS is a uniquely challenging prospect; highly detailed, wide-ranging and encompassing both theory and practice. Preparation for this exam can be very difficult, and resources tailored to it are scarce. As the consolidated notes of a recent successful candidate, this book is an essential resource when preparing for the viva. The wide variety of questions require you to define, diagnose or choose between treatment options, while MCQs and SBAs help you to objectively evaluate your progress - a unique supplement to your study plan. Answers provided are comprised of an invaluable combination of detailed written answers and lists that will remind you of key points and help you structure your preparation.

The author team have themselves recently successfully sat the FRCR exam, and have prior experience in the SBA format, making them ideally suited to write such a book, and have produced an excellent revision guide for the new format exam. There are 750 stem questions covering all 6 modules, including a separate section with a 75 questions-per-module ‘mock’ examination which readers can use to test themselves against the clock, under examination conditions, to hone their technique. The questions have been extensively researched and cross-checked, with relevant topics being drawn from major radiology textbooks, as well as current radiological journals such as Clinical Radiology and Radiographics. Answers are given with detailed explanations and references are provided, which can also be used for further reading as appropriate. As a bonus the authors pass on their own proven exam tips and techniques.Key Points• Authors recently sat exams themselves • Over 700 questions
