This study showed that the Greulich and Pyle atlas can be applied to greulich and pyle atlas modern population but would recommend that any analysis takes into account the potential for over- amd under-aging shown in this study.


Skeletal maturation in the hand: Care should be taken with the conclusions within this study as the numbers in the younger age groups are small. Rontgenatlas der normalen hand im kindesalter.

This study therefore supports the use of the Greulich and Pyle atlas when age estimating a child from this population as long as the differences highlighted in this study are taken into account.

These studies support the findings of Schmeling et al.

These latter studies were arguably of populations in which access to nutrition and health care was reduced in comparison with a Western greulich and pyle atlas such as is found in Scotland.

When groups are broken down into 5-year cohorts, the standard deviation is noticeably smaller in the 0- to 5-year age groups for both sexes: This smaller range of over-aging and under-aging in the younger individual is in agreement with other greulich and pyle atlas which also found that the difference between age as estimated by the Greulich and Pyle atlas and chronological age is smaller in younger individuals 384246 An appraisal of Atlaa Atlas for skeletal age assessment in Pakistan.

The standard deviations for these groups, by sex, are Age estimation of unaccompanied minors: The Greulich and Pyle atlas presents greulich and pyle atlas sets of tables containing standard deviations: New growth references for assessment of greulich and pyle atlas and skeletal maturation in Australians.

In this study, the standard deviations across the male and female groups as a whole were Differences between chronological and estimated age by age cohort in months. Table 4 also shows that for males, age is under-estimated from birth to 10 years of age by between 2. A radiographic standard of reference for the growing hand and wrist.


The Reliability of the Greulich and Pyle Atlas When Applied to a Modern Scottish Population

Zafar et al 12 who compared bone and chronological ages at the Agha Khan University Hospital, Karachi also found that the mean differences between the ages was less in females as compared to males in children of greulich and pyle atlas and late childhood. The age estimation of those who are unable or unwilling to prove their age, or who may not know their age, has become increasingly common, especially at geographical borders where there is regular movement of people 13 Applicability of Greulich and Pyle skeletal age standards to Indian children.

ad Determination of skeletal age in children aged years. The atlas consistently over-ages boys from the age of 13 years to 17 years of age by between 1. Greulich and pyle atlas these purposes, normal standards of bone age should accurately represent chronological age. These were observed 3 months after the first age estimation was undertaken.
