Bone Age assessment is a critical factor for determining delayed development in children, which can be a sign of pathologies such as endocrine diseases, growth abnormalities, chromosomal, neurological and congenital disorders among others. Typically, specialists such as pediatric endocrinologists inspect visually an X-ray of the non-dominant hand of the child, like the ones shown in the Figure, and compare them against examples from textbook atlases to estimate bone age and predict adult height.
In collaboration with the Radiology Department at Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá and funded by Colciencias, we are developing automated approaches to support specialists in the assessment of skeletal maturity in pediatric patients in Colombia.
