Abstract

Skeletal age evaluation is one of the most objective criteria in auxological diagnosis. The process of skeletal maturation depends, in the first place, on the genetic potential of a given individual, but also on socio-economic conditions, mainly on the quality of nutrition and nutritional habits.(Acheson R.M., Hewitt D, 1954; Kopczyńska-Si.korska J., 1964; Garn S.M., Rohman, CH.G., 1966).
