Beschreibung

In the past, determination of bone maturity relied on visual evaluation of skeletal development in the hand and wrist, most commonly using the Greulich and Pyle atlas. The Gilsanz and Ratib digital atlas takes advantage of digital imaging and provides a more effective and objective approach to assessment of skeletal maturity. The atlas integrates the key morphological features of ossification in the bones of the hand and wrist and provides idealized, sex- and age-specific images of skeletal development New to this revised second edition is a description and user manual for Bone Age for iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®, which can be purchased and used separately from this book. The App can be easily employed to calculate the deviation of the patient's age from the normal range and to predict a possible growth delay. This easy-to-use atlas and the related App will be invaluable for radiologists, endocrinologists, and pediatricians and also relevant to forensic physicians.

He was trained in Internal Medicine (Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota), Radiology (Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York), and Pediatric Radiology (Children's Hospital of Boston, Massachusetts). As Director of Imaging Research, Dr. Gilsanz oversees investigators and assists in their research relating to the advancement of the use of imaging technology and the development of imaging markers related to pediatric disease risk. He's especially interested in the identification of pediatric antecedents of common adult diseases, such as osteoporosis. He has conducted many novel investigations on the determinants and regulators of bone accrual during childhood and puberty.
Osman Ratib is a Professor in Medicine, Chairman of the Department of Medical Imaging and Head of the Division of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital of Geneva.
