    Hey there,

    I'm a first year Diagnostic Radiography student at uni and i have my OSCE and written IFP exam next week.

    I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me what it's like and the type of questions that come up. My first exam at uni and i'm a bit scared.

    Any sort of help will be appreciated. Many thanks.

    I used to study diagnostic radiography before switching to biomedical science.

    My osce's were ok.

    Most of it would be on a computer "click on the anatomy" style. Some of them we were given a bone and asked to identify different parts. In others we had a series of radiographs to identify pathology from. Know how to spot a pneumothorax, they loved that one at my old uni (cumbria - lancaster campus).

    In the mock x-ray dont forget to introduce yourself - state you are a student - ask patient if they are comfortable with you doing it - if its a member of the opposite sex again ask if they are comfortable for you to do the procedure - give informed consent on the procedure. Make sure your positioning is spot on - repeat x-rays increase patient dose.

    i did it in 2007/2008 so that all i can really remember. Hope it helps.

    Just keep cool and think about what you are doing
