Bone age

What is Bone age?

The Age of your bones can be determined by looking at what parts of the bone have already calcified and what parts are yet to calcify. Each bone follows a pretty standard course when it comes to the rate of calcification. So an x-ray of a bone, or visually inspecting the bone can tell you alot about the age of the person it belongs too
