Utilizing an extensive data bank of answers recorded by those who have taken the test, radiology doctors around the nation from prestigious and little-known programs alike have been cheating the exam system for a very long time. With exam officials openly admitting that the cheating has been going on for a ‘long time’, the information sheds light on the fact that many radiology doctors may actually be completely unqualified to be dosing up patients with damaging radiation.
Doctors around the country have setup very complex banks of information known as ‘recalls’, which have been setup by doctors who have previously memorized test questions and shared them for public viewing. With each question meticulously documented and archived by radiology residents, the answers cover just about every program in the county — including highly the highly prestigious and challenging. This system makes even the most respected exam completely worthless in determining the knowledge base of the doctors.
Extensive Cheating Puts Unqualified Doctors in Control of Your Health
The cheating is so widespread that even the executive director of the American Board of Radiology (ABR) has brought the issue to the public eye. As an overseer of the exam that certified the radiologists, Dr. Gary Becker expressed his knowledge of the ongoing cheating process that has existed for years:
“It’s been going on a long time, I know, but I can’t give you a date,” said Becker. “We would call it cheating, and our exam security policy would call it cheating.”
What’s more is radiology residents taking the test actually are required to sign a document agreeing not to share material on the test, but the report shows that the document is widely ignored. In fact, when interviewed by CNN dozens of radiology students stated that they promised fellow residents to write down the questions from the tests immediately. These are the doctors that are responsible for dosing up children with ‘safe’ levels of radiation.
The deep corruption inside the mainstream medical industry extends down to the lowest levels, including potential radiology doctors.

If these are extremely important questions which gauge the student's knowledge of the subject, then why is it cheating if the student memorizes the answers? If the student memorizes the answers, then the student knows the subject.
You must have never cheated on a test before. If knowing the answers to a test was enough than what would be the point of the 2-500 page text book? If your knowledge is only based on the answers in a test then you would have a very limited knowledge on the subject. duh
BMJ Also just brought out a report that fraud in clinical trials is putting lives at risk.
what they dont tell you is that each doctor also passes one of the most strenuous oral exams that can only be prepared for by knowing a broad range of modalities and diseases….no old tests can prepare you for that, either you know the material or you dont…this is just another example of a journalist causing public fear for name recognition….so you can stop with the silly remark of "dosing up children with ‘safe’ levels of radiation". come on…can you get anymore dramatic you drama Queen.
I work at a hospital and have seen first hand incompetent Doctors order the wrong exams. This happens all the time. It is good to out any corruption, there are many MDs from other countries here that just need to pass and will do anything to achieve that. MDs are not god as some seem to think they are. Some also seem to think they are better looking after they become one.
