Image Challenges

Looking to test your cardiology knowledge? The Image Challenge section of Heart is a great tool for self-assessment. Each one consists of a brief clinical introduction and one or more images, with an accompanying board-review format multiple choice question. There are over 150 Image Challenges available online in the Heart archive.


Do you have an educational or unusual image to share that others could learn from? We would love you to submit it to us as an Image Challenge. Read our author guidelines to find out how to structure your submission.
