There are multiple methods available for skeletal age determination in the paediatric endocrine population. Only two methods, using left hand and wrist x-rays are in frequent clinical use, however Greulich & Pyle is based on data collated between 1931 and 1942 and Tanner Whitehouse uses data from as far back as 1949. We present the initial results of an automated software model of shape and textural analysis of the physes of the knee.
