    Free online software for calculating bone age


    I came across this on Sumer Sethi's famous Radiology blog.
    http://sumerdoc.blogspot.com/2007/04/bone-age-estimation.html.

    I'm not sure if it's easier than flipping through the Greulich and Pyle Atlas, and I've never used the Tanner Whitehouse method. Nor do I know if this method has been validated (I've tried to look in PubMed). But it looks like it might be interesting for people who like this sort of thing.

    I could not access Sumer's.
    I have used TannerWhitehouse for bone age of teenage cricketers in international competitions to verify age categories. its good but laborious.
    Was wondering, how you report bone age of youngsters using G&P?
    Do you look for best match then state this in report.
    Any comment about the mean bone age at this chronological age and the standard deviation?
    Thanks

    Hi Shahrin,

    I have never used the Tanner Whitehouse method myself, but at least one of my paediatric colleagues does. With the G&P I look at the best match and state it in the report. I have no views about the mean bone age or SD.
