Have radiologists routinely cheated for years on medical exams to get board-certified by getting the actual answers in advance? That’s what a doctor at renowned military hospital alleges has been going on for at least a decade. He provided CNN with several years of what’s known as “recalls” – the actual questions and answers from real exams.
