Methods Used in Computer-Assisted Bone Age Assessment of Children

Sema Aydoğdu and Fatih Başçiftçi

Abstract—For many years, various studies have been conducted to determine methods to identify the age of living persons. Nowadays, the method most commonly used for the identification of age is bone age assessment. Bone age assessment is a method that is very frequently used in forensic cases and by child development specialists. However, the decision process in these assessments depends on the observations of a specialist; hence, the assessment results may vary from one specialist to another. The purpose of automatic assessment with computers is to render the decision process more objective, and to consequently allow more consistent results to be obtained. Studies in this area have drawn considerable attention to automatic assessment methods, especially following the developments in the area of image processing. In the current study, the Greulich-Pyle (GP) and the Tanner-Whitehouse (TW) methods used in computer-assisted bone age assessment were presented, and information was also provided regarding the automation of these methods.

Index Terms—Bone age assessment, Greulich-Pyle method, Tanner-Whitehouse method, TW3.
