"I took my registry in 1995, so I bought the book for CME credits. I wish I had used your book when I was studying. It would have made the experience much better for me."
Denise Rutilio, RT RDMS

Breast Sonography Review

A Q&A Review for the ARDMS Breast Exam

Breast Sonography Review
 
 

 
 
Kathryn A. Gill, MS, RT, RDMS, FSDMS
 
Exam: Breast Sonography
Step 2: Mock Examination
CME Credits: 6
ISBN: 9780941022750
Format: Comb-bound
Catalog No: 11052
Price: $55.00
 
Test yourself before the ARDMS tests you! Kathryn Gill’s Breast Sonography Review illuminates the facts and principles on which you will be tested, hones your test-taking skills, and reveals your strengths and weaknesses by exam topic. Based precisely on the breast specialty exam outline published by ARDMS, this review contains 289 registry-like questions together with answers, clear explanations, and quick references for further study. Image-based cases and schematic illustrations prepare you to tackle images, anatomy, and pathology on the exam. Coverage includes breast instrumentation and technique, normal anatomy, benign versus malignant features, specific lesions (benign), specific lesions (malignant), and invasive procedures—all in the same proportion as the exam itself. Breast Sonography Review is very effective in combination with Ultrasound Physics Review: SPI Edition, by Cindy A. Owen, RDMS, RVT, FSDMS, and James A. Zagzebski, PhD. Why are the Davies mock exams so popular and effective? Because they contain the same kinds of thought-provoking questions you will find on the exam and help you pass! Approved for 6 hours of continuing medical education credit (CME).
