ATLAS DE GREULICH & PYLE PDF

E-mail: ude. Received Oct 29; Accepted Jan Abstract Context: Vitamin D insufficiency has now reached epidemic proportions and has been linked to increased body fat and decreased muscle strength. Whether vitamin D insufficiency is also related to adipose tissue infiltration in muscle is not known. Objective: The objective of the study was to examine the relationship between serum hydroxyvitamin D 25OHD and the degree of fat infiltration in muscle.

Quality of the studies was assessed using the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence tool. Meta-analysis used mean differences and standard deviations as summary statistics for the difference between bone age BA and chronological age CA. Of the 49 eligible studies, 35 were appropriate for further meta-analysis. Introduction Determining maturity and understanding growth in a child is critical for medical and psychosocial purposes.

Assessing bone age is important to investigate whether the maturity of bones is occurring at the same rate as the chronological ageing process. For example, in asylum seekers and unaccompanied minors without valid documents to prove their ages [ 1 ], it is important to assess bone age using a reliable and suitable method [ 2 ].

Incorrectly assessing a child as an adult leaves the child with limited access to education, healthcare and other support provided to children. The assessment process is typically based on comparing a hand-wrist radiograph of a child with the age-matched standard radiographs as contained in the atlas.

This question is important, particularly given the increasing legal and illegal influx of immigrants to certain parts of Europe. No free text was used in this search. For Embase, we used the term Greulich and Pyle and refined the search to include articles in English published between 1st January and 15th February The search was refined to include articles in English published between 1st January and 15th February The following exclusion criteria were then applied: 1.

Health status of participants could not be confirmed from the article or participants with developmental disorders or subjected to nutritional supplementation these represent unhealthy children expected to show delayed or advanced bone age.

Full text not available within the resources available to the reviewers 4. Full text not in English 5. Review articles 6. When the mean difference between bone age BA and chronological age CA was not reported or could not be calculated by the reviewers based on the study results presented. The search was independently carried out by two reviewers KA and ACO , followed by a consensus meeting to agree the final selection of studies for inclusion in this review.

Discrepancies were resolved by discussion. The tool considers five aspects of a study: population, method of participant selection, outcomes, analysis and generalisability of the study. Data extraction A single reviewer K.

Sample size males and females 2. Ethnicity or country of origin 3. Mean and SD of bone age 5. Mean and SD of chronological age 6. Applicability of the standard Given the review question, studies were divided into four groups based on major ethnic groups: African, Asian, Caucasian and Hispanic.

Data for each major ethnic group were summarised and analysed separately. Statistical analysis A combination of random effect meta-analyses by ethnicity African, Asian, Caucasian and Hispanic and sex was conducted using R Software [ 6 ]. Overall meta-analysis of all ethnicities was also determined. Additionally, meta-regression with covariates analysis including sex and ethnicity as explanatory variables was determined.

Other ethnicities were excluded from interval sub-analysis as the age groups were not constant between studies. In total, 50 meta-analyses were performed using mean differences and standard deviations as summary statistics for the difference between bone age and chronological age. When a study examined more than one ethnicity, each ethnicity was treated as a separate study only for the meta-analysis.

A funnel plot was determined to assess bias or the present of any systematic heterogeneity. Results This systematic review identified studies of which 45 were eligible for inclusion Fig. The total number of children in the included studies was 21, 11, boys , comprising 11, Caucasians boys , Asians boys , Africans boys and Hispanics boys. As summarised in Table 1 , there was minimal risk of bias for internal validity alone in one study [ 33 ], for external validity alone in five studies [ 17 , 18 , 25 , 40 , 50 ] and for both internal and external validity in 12 studies [ 11 , 20 , 21 , 22 , 27 , 30 , 35 , 42 , 43 , 45 , 51 , 54 ].

There was significant risk of bias for internal validity alone in 0 studies, for external validity alone in two studies [ 8 , 46 ] and for both internal and external validity in 2 studies [ 23 , 29 ]. Sources of bias in these four studies requiring that their results be interpreted with caution include: 1. Insufficient detail about the source of the study population [ 29 ] 3.

Faecage Bland Altman plots were generated to visualize agreement between the two ages. The intra-observer tests involved retesting 30 randomly chosen images from the male left-hand images and 30 randomly chosen images from the female left-hand images. The atlas comprises of reference radiographic images of left wrist and hand from birth till 19 years of age for males and 18 years of age for females. J Pak Med Assoc.
