Building on the popular Greulich and Pyle atlas, this unique software modernizes and expedites pediatric skeletal maturity determination.
Bone age assessment, a crucial part of the diagnosis and management of pediatric growth disorders as well as the timing of certain pediatric orthopedic procedures, has for decades depended on the meticulous examination of plain radiographs. Examining the subtle changes present within the maturing human hand often proves to be challenging and time-consuming.
This powerful software program expedites evaluation, optimizes workflow, and minimizes user-introduced errors with the reliable bone age calculator and built-in report generator. It also facilitates viewing of the atlas images in digital format, including tips to distinguish fine details between bone age standards. Users can easily zoom in on radiographic features, set image level and width to their preference, and compare two or three reference standards side-by-side for difficult cases. The digital format may also be available for integration with your Radiology Information System (RIS) for further workflow enhancement.
Given the broad application of pediatric bone aging, Skeletal Development of the Hand and Wrist Digital Bone Age Companion will be a valued daily resource for practicing and training radiologists and all of those who employ bone age studies as part of their practice.
