Title: An automated technique for the radiographic determination of bone age
Author: Steiner, Robert A.; Clifton, Donald K.; Bremner, William J.
Abstract: We have developed an automated procedure for determining bone-age in the monkey, Macaca fascicularis. The status of epiphysial junctions and sesamoids were determined from radiographs. Epiphyses were scored as either open or closed, and sesamoids were scored as either present or absent. Bone-age was calculated by a computer program that stored and used a data base of probabilities for epiphysial closure and sesamoid appearance. The simplicity of scoring, combined with the speed and accuracy of the calculations, make this technique potentially adaptable for use in a variety of primate species.
