Board Of Radiologic Technology (BORT) Important Announcement for 2014


According to the post made by Eng’r. Bayani San Juan, member of the Board of Radiologic Technology(BORT) in the Philippines, in his Facebook profile, he mentioned the following announcement:

BORT Chair Hon. Winnie(Wilhemina Gana) announced during the Aug 29 PRC WS that in 2014 , there will only be ONE licensing examination only. The scheduled announcement is June 2014. – for the info of all the RT schools and examinees…

This means that starting next year, the RadTech and X-Ray Tech Board exam will only be once a year and that is every June. No Board Examination schedule for the month of November. Actually, this once a year schedule should have took effect this year, 2013, but since Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has already made and published the exam schedule (which was June and November 2013), this policy will take effect next year.

Another announcement made was that, there is a pending PRC-BORT Resolution regarding the Board Examination for X-Ray Technologists (XRT), who have finished his/her BSRT Education. According to this pending resolution, licensed X-Ray Techs who have already graduated from their BSRT education, will only take the Radiological Sciences (RadSci) subject and pass it to become RRTs.

Further details will be posted here once confirmed and published.

Detailed Anatomy of the Forearm For RadTech


lateral bone of the forearm (thumb side)

Shorter of the 2 bones of the forearm

Directly involved in the formation of the wrist joint (radiocarpal joint).

forearm with label complete

The Proximal Extremity

Radial Head, neck, and a tuberosity.

Radial Head

 Disc shaped that articulates with the capitulum of the humerus and radial notch of the ulna.

 Located on the proximal part of the radius.

Radial Neck

 Constricted part distal to the head, connecting the head to the body.

The Radial tuberosity

 Rough prominence on the anteromedial surface of the radius below its neck.

 The biceps tendon inserts into it.


The Body/shaft

 Becomes gradually larger as it approaches the wrist joint.

The Distal Extremity

 Styloid process, carpal articular surface and ulnar notch.

The Styloid Process of the Radius

 Large bony prominence on the lateral border and distal end of the radius.

 Can be palpated on the thumb of the wrist joint.

 Much larger than the styloid process of the ulna.

The Carpal articular surface

 Large smooth area on the distal end of the radius that articulates with the carpal bones to form the wrist joint.

The Ulnar Notch

 Small depression on the medial aspect of the distal radius.

 The head of the ulna fits here.



The medial bone of the forearm

Situated at the little finger side.

The longer of the 2 bones of the forearm

Directly involved in the formation of the elbow joint.

The Proximal Extremity

Olecranon, coronoid process, trochlear notch and a radial notch.

The Olecranon/Olecranon Process

Can easily be palpated on the posterior aspect of the elbow.

Has an anterior smooth surface that is concave and helps form the elbow joint.

Coronoid Process

Beak-like and lies below and anterior to the olecranon process.

Fits into the coronoid fossa of the humerus when the elbow is flexed.

The Brachialis muscle is attached here.

Together with the olecranon receives the trochlea of the humerus.

Trochlear/Semilunar Notch

Curved area between the olecranon and the coronoid process.

The trochlea of the humerus fits into this notch.

Radial Notch

Located on the lateral aspect of the proximal ulna.

Located laterally and inferiorly to the trochlear notch.

It receives the head of the radius.


The Coronoid Tubercle/Tuberosity

 The medial margin of the coronoid process opposite the radial notch.


 Large at its superior end, becomes smaller as it approaches the wrist.

Distal Extremity

 Head and styloid process

Head of the Ulna

 Lower expanded end and can be palpated through the skin.

 Visible as a prominence on the posteromedial border of the wrist.

 When the hand is pronated the head and styloid process are easily felt and seen on the little finger side of the distal forearm.

The Styloid Process of the Ulna

 Small pointed prominence that extends distally on the posteromedial border of the ulnar head.
