HI,,
x-rays can be identified if some practice is there...Moreover,I feel that UG knoeledge regarding x-ray helps a lot...
many of the x-rays are recognizable by a first glimpse only. Usually,x-ray which are there in exam are very conspicuous..They show very clearly what yu have to identify...no extra effort is needed(exceptions are always there).
The other thing is clinical picture...they are not going to ask you anything directly like identify this or that.. X-ray Finding will always be in the context of clinical picture..Sometimes, we don't even need to see an X-ray to reach the diagnosis -the answer of the question.

You don't need to worry. If they provide picture, it would be more easier to answer. Also I had only 2 CT scans overall, in my exam.
