Abstract

We conducted a historical review of the calculation methods of bone age and adult height prediction. The importance of knowing bone maturation and its importance in pediatrics and endocrinology are highlighted in this paper. The authors provides a new numerical method to calculate bone age through the carpal, metacarpal and carpalmetacarpal index, as well as to predict the child's adult height. Both transversal and longitudinal studies have been developed in the Spanish and Swiss population. This methodology can be applied to any population group to study, so it can be used in clinical methods instead of Greulich and Pyle, and Tanner Whitehouse. In this sense, you can create own standards for Latin American children. The software and publications prior to this work can be downloaded free at: www.comz.org, link-banner: Bone Maturation.
