e-Case Submission Process
RANZCR is currently in the process of implementing e-Exams in various formats, with the first e-Multiple Choice Question exams successfully conducted in August 2012, those being the Part 2 Radiology and Pathology exams.
At this time the College is also commencing the collection of digital cases (DICOM format), initially for the e-Film Reading exams which will be commence in April 2013. The Radiology Education Board and Continuing Professional Development Committee have approved the allocation of 4 CPD points, in Category 3.5D (exam setting/marking), for the submission of an e-Case. A complete e-Case comprises both clinical images and associated submission form (typed), a copy of which you must retain for RANZCR CPD audit purposes. This is a new activity for RANZCR fellows, not only to achieve CPD points, but to also be part of the huge transition in the examination process for all future trainees.
e-Cases may be submitted from any body system, imaging modality, condition category and difficulty rating. The e-Case submission form (available in both PDF and MS Word formats) is comprehensive and straight forward to complete, incorporating drop down menus listing all options for selection.
eCase Library Submission Form Word 2007 and Above (Recommended for use with Microsoft Word 2007 and above)

Currently e-Cases and associated submission forms will need to be posted to the College. The Electronic Exam Advisory Group is in the process of evaluating the most appropriate solution for an electronic image archive not only for e-Exams but also e-Learning projects, e-Case library and e-Research repository requirements. This solution aims to meet the long term goals of the college from various perspectives.
Membership support is essential to build the e-Exam case numbers and this project provides an opportunity for all to participate in the future of RANZCR radiology exams.
