Viva Practice: Chest X-ray


In this learning pathway, George Harisis teaches his approach to the radiology viva exam using a series of chest x-ray cases. He shows how cases can be divided into five different types; the differential case, the detective case, the Aunt Minnie, the "normal" case and the curve ball (see overview). This pathway includes an audio guide as well as 30 case examples with video commentary.   

  • 30 chest x-ray practice cases 
  • over 1 hour of audio and video recordings
  • key tips and related articles
  • English subtitles for all videos

Approx. completion time = 3 hrs 

Intended audience

This learning pathway is primarily intended for radiology trainees approaching fellowship examinations. While the focus is specifically on oral exams, the cases are also likely to be useful for written examinations and as a refresher for radiologists. The content is advanced and so if you are looking to learn the basics of chest x-rays then this is NOT for you.

Pathway Overview

Audio transcript
Hi my name is George Harisis, and I’ve put together this learning pathway to help candidates who are preparing for the radiology viva. In order to do well in this exam, it's important to have a good viva technique, and while everyone’s approach will be slightly different, I’ll be presenting a framework which helped me and many of my colleagues pass the fellowship exams of the Royal Australian and New Zealand college of radiologists. This learning pathway uses chest x-rays as example cases with detailed explanation videos for every case.

As the content is targeted to the pre-exam candidate, there will be a certain level of assumed knowledge, however junior trainees may also benefit from many of these concepts.  So if you do decide to register, I hope you enjoy the learning pathway and if you’re about to sit the radiology exams, I wish you the very best of luck!
