Age estimation using cervical vertebrae has been increasingly used to assess skeletal maturation instead of the hand-wrist bone age
in recent years (1, 6-8, 12-18).
016) were correlated with AFN BMD when adjusting for bone age
Radiography reveals an enlarged thymus and advanced bone age
In comparative analysis stepwise binary logistic regression (Wald's test) was used to examine the contribution of bone age
, BMI, Cole-Stanfield index and hand radiograms parameters (BL, BT, MD, CT, NBT, NMD, CBDN2CT, NCBDN, CT/BTx100, CBDN).
3), low IGF-1 level (35 ng/dL, below -2 SD), retarded bone age
(8 years and 10 months), and GH deficiency were detected.
In our study 90% of children showed the clini- cal signs of the rickets, 80% children had radio- logical findings of rickets, 18% showed delayed bone age
and 12% children above six months age had no ossification centre at all.
Predicting mandibular growth potential with cervical vertebral bone age
Hand-wrist bone age
was evaluated by the TW3 method, which assessed specific ossification centers of the hand and wrist (radius, ulna, and selected metacarpals and phalanges), leading to their classification into one of several stages.
One of the most frequently requested tests in the evaluation of short and tall stature is a bone age
Such prediction is done using bone age
Some of the adverse effects included enlargement of male or female sexual organs, premature development of pubic hair, advanced bone age
and aggressive behavior, the FDA reported.
Knowledge of statistical averages is not accurately predictive, as chronological age does not necessarily correlate with bone age
