What is it about?

The flow of proposed work is comprised of three stages, in stage 1 preprocessing is carried out, classification of preprocessed radiographs are classified into male and female samples using convolution kernels based deep neural net. Further, distance features are extracted from the origin of carpal bones to tip of extracted phalangeal regions in the classified outcomes from stage 2 using imtool image analyzer. Finally, classification of distance features is performed using Support Vector Machines with Gaussian Kernel (SVM-GK) to label the radiographs into ages from 1 to 17. The experimentation is performed on the datasets of Pediatric Bone Age challenge of Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) of about 12000 images of 1–17 year age group

Why is it important?

Bone age is one of the crucial parameter for assessment of a human’s height, determination of age of puberty and various growths related disorders diagnosis. Quantification of age of a human using bone growth assists in prediction of competency towards few specific fields such as sports, army etc


It is important for prediction of bone age of a person and compare qith chronological age, also helps in assessment of growth disorders in people.
