Detection of bone age in children using ultrasound method

Алексеева Л.Н., Кинзерский А.Ю.

Abstract


We have examined 109 children at the age from 2 months to 14 years in order to study ultrasonography potentials of bone age determination. The study is based on comparing the left hand X-rays with ultrasound scan data using the technique proposed by us. As it has been established, the ultrasound scan method is characterized by high sensitivity, specificity and accuracy for all age-related groups. The method proposed makes it possible to reveal earlier the ossification foci consisting of non-mineralized or little mineralized bone tissue which have not yet been determined by x-rays.
