Radiology Spotters

Spotters are very important components of the radiology practical exams and if you score well in spotters you have won half the battle. 
Although this is not the best way to evaluate the caliber of a student because when you will be reporting it will rarely happen that you will get these “typical” Aunt-Minnie cases. Plus no one would be standing with a gun to your head to diagnose cases in a minute. Read this excellent article by Dr Ravi Ramakantan on this topic – Spot the spot! All said and done, that’s how our system is and you have no other option.
A tip on attempting spotters is to stick to the first answer that strikes you. You will be right in most cases, provided you have studied well and attempted lots of spotters.
Each post has 10 radiology spotters.
Most of the spotters are straightforward.
Spotters slides will advance automatically at the end of a minute.
These are best viewed on a desktop, preferably in full-screen mode. On a mobile phone use it in the full-screen mode by clicking on the icon at the bottom right of the presentation.
Best way to attempt is to write down answers on a piece of paper and then check them at the end of the presentation.
Answer slides are at the end of each presentation which are accompanied by links to individual cases if you wish to read more about these.
Get into the practice of writing COMPLETE answers for all spotters so that you do not commit silly mistakes in the exam. For eg “Osteosarcoma involving the right distal femur” is a better answer than just writing “osteosarcoma”
You can write your answers in the comments sections on each page to check out how you fare as compared to others.
