Greulich and pyle atlas

Find articles by Anwar Ahmed. Conclusion MRI of the left hand is a feasible alternative to hand radiographs for skeletal age estimation in adolescents using the GP criteria with 2 SD. Ahd males, SA was advanced during early childhood, delayed during middle and late childhood and, again, advanced during adolescence. We used the 1. An over or underestimation of bone age can result in the inappropriate diagnosis and treatment of growth disorders, unjust punishment, misplacement in a new school or undue advantage in competitive sports.

However there is a high correlation between the two ages in both genders Table-Iwhich makes serial measurements of bone age useful in diagnosing and treating endocrine pylee of growth and stature. The MR images of two healthy volunteers are presented in Figs. It was also the shortest sequence. Open in a separate window.

Atlas of skeletal maturation. The chronologic age of the volunteers is shown on the x-axis and the differences between the assessed age and chronologic age on the y-axis, given in years.

Hand MRI and the Greulich-Pyle atlas in skeletal age estimation in adolescents

Age determination by magnetic resonance imaging of the wrist in adolescent male football players. High-field open versus short-bore magnetic resonance imaging of the spine: Radiographic atlas phle skeletal development of the hand and wrist. At,as Cited Jan 5.

Compliance with ethical standards Conflict of interest The authors have nothing to disclose. Only one pilot study correlated the age estimated by MRI with a radiograph of the left hand [ 16 ].

Subsequently, SA was advanced, with complete maturity being attained at 16 years in females and 18 years in males. Short examination times are beneficial to avoid motion artifacts and maintain the compliance of children.

The exclusion criterion was noncompliance during the anv. ICCs were also calculated for male and female volunteers separately to determine agreement between the readers in both groups.

Roche found that the left greulih was more advanced than the right hand [ 20 ], while Baer and Djrkatz found no such effect [ 21 ]. Two Hundred and Twenty children males, 81 females between ages of 56 and months 4. For volunteers outside that range, the last available standard deviation was assumed.

Various methods have been developed to compute bone age. The plots show the mean of the estimated ages from the two methods radiographs and MRIs on the x-axis, given in years, and the difference between the greulicy ages on the y-axis, also given in years.

Bland Altman Plot females. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. Age determination in asylum seekers: To our knowledge, there are no published data that address skeletal maturation changes from to the present at this time.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Stanford University Press; However, because the evaluation of boys and girls was performed separately, the results of the study should not be biased.

Although our volunteers were from the socioeconomic middle class with a background of good medical care, similar to those assessed by the GP atlas, which comprised X-rays of healthy white children, we also found that in the age group with an available SD, healthy volunteers also tended to be estimated as older than their chronologic age using 1 SD.

Results All examinations were well tolerated and completed with no compliance issues. Bland-Altman plots [ 17 ] for both readers were drawn for the ten patients to determine agreement between radiographs and MRIs.

Wiliam Walter Greulich and Dr. This corresponds to the GP atlas results using hand X-rays [ 18 ].

Hand MRI and the Greulich-Pyle atlas in skeletal age estimation in adolescents

The age of healthy adolescents could be correctly estimated by expert readers within 2 SD by hand MRI and the Greulich-Pyle atlas, with high agreement. A mean difference of less than 6 months is noted between the chronological age and bone age of females aged months, months and months.

Multicenter studies are necessary to greulicch the study statements in a larger number of participants. Study of skeletal maturation in a group of melbourne children.
