[edit] Discussion

  • The most commonly used method is based on a single x-ray of the fingers, hand, and wrist.
  • A hand is easily x-rayed with minimal radiation and shows many bones in a single view.
  • The bones in the x-ray are compared to the bones of a standard atlas, usually "Greulich and Pyle"
