, which lists the domain of each category, along with sample questions, is available here
Since the range of content relevant to the topic of radiology quality and safety is broad, a separate document has been produced to serve as a syllabus of the quality and safety knowledge that residents eligible to take the Core Exam are expected to know. The Noninterpretive Skills Resource Guide
can be found here
The Core Exam Blueprints
listed below provide an estimated breakdown of the content from most categories that are included on each administration of the exam, which may be useful when preparing to take the Core Exam. While the study guides provide a more detailed listing of the domain of knowledge being examined, the blueprints provide the relative percent distribution of content that is tested across the domain. Candidates should remember that no two exam forms are the same as they represent a sampling of knowledge from within the larger domain, with forms statistically equated for difficulty when determining cut scores for passing.
Core Practice Exam
In addition, a 100-item Core Practice Exam,
