Materials and Methods: In this clinical trial study, medical stagers were divided into two groups, consisting of 30 subjects. The first group was instructed through traditional method and the second one who had not passed their radiology course had been instructed on charts and diagnostic tables concerning diagnosis and interpretation of radiolucency in chest radiography by means of chart and face to face method. Then, the members of both groups were evaluated through questionnaires regarding 15 dissimilar plain chest radiographies. The obtained data was analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: Both groups achieved more than 60% of their final exam score thus, there was no significant difference between the two groups while the second one gained better results. Conclusion: This study indicated that both of the instruction methods are useful and practical and a combination of them could promote the quality of medical education.
