Quick reference medical handouts used by Pediatric offices


My doctor wants to do a bone age test on my daughter. Can you explain what this test will show?
    
A bone age test consists of a single x-ray of the hand and wrist and is used to assess the physical development status of children.

The child’s x-ray is then matched to a standard atlas of skeletal development based on age and sex. The radiologist then reports on the child’s bone age in relationship to their chronological age.

If your daughter has the test done and her bone age is within normal limits, then she is growing according to her “genetic blueprint.” On the other hand, if her bone age is at least six months delayed, then there could be medical problem causing her to be on the short side.
