normal bones

This is a repository of example radiographs (x-rays) of the pediatric skeleton by age. It was inspired by a similar project on UCSD's BonePit site. Ages are approximate (generally, +/- 3 months). These are NOT intended as bone-age references! Indeed, male and female subjects are intermixed.
