In all, around 1500 candidates took the theoretical and/or theoretical-practical test, encompassing the areas of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging, General Ultrasound, Ultrasound in Gynecology and Obstetrics, Vascular Ultrasound with Doppler, Diagnostic Neuroradiology, Therapeutic Neuroradiology, Bone Densitometry, Mammography and Interventional Radiology and Angioradiology. According to Dr. Túlio Macedo, coordinator of the Titulation and Admission Committee of the Brazilian College of Radiology and Imaging Diagnosis, the test has registered an important evolution, being considered much more mature than years ago. “The Proof of Title of Certificate of Practice evolved not only in the number of candidates, but mainly in terms of quality from a didactic, pedagogical and linguistic point of view. A significant fact about the differences in relation to previous editions is that we now have questions that deal with the theme 'Patient Safety', which was not addressed. This subject has been growing in different institutions around the world and for us it is no different, after all society has changed. That is why we consider it essential that the candidate has sufficient knowledge in this area, given that he will deal with it throughout his life”, he pointed out. Among the participants, Dr. Vitor Barretos, from Salvador, who took the Interventional Radiology test, said that it is common for candidates to be apprehensive, as the content of the test is very broad. He also reinforced the importance of the Title in his career. “In the professional environment, it is important to have the recognition of society.
