Abstract: Objective:The aim of this study was to determine the differences between the skeletal ages estimated by TW2 and TW3 methods through their RUS and Carpal systems.Material and Methods:A sample of two hundred and forty hand and wrist radiographs of male and female Brazilian children aged 84-199 months was evaluated by five observers. The Dunnet test was performed for statistical analysis.Results:Results showed higher skeletal ages estimated by TW2RUS than TW3RUS and Carpal for both genders. For girls a statistica… Show more

“…Similar studies have been performed for the TW method on North American [169], Austrian [162], English [170,171], Brazilian [172], Korean [173], Chinese [174][175][176][177], Japanese [178][179][180]188], Belgian [181], Danish [182], Mexican [183], Indian [184], Portuguese [185], Australian [186], even Hottentot populations [187], with similar conclusions.…”

“…Since then, TW2 and TW3 have been tested in several countries and on different samples. In a Brazilian study by Ortega et al ,76 the range of mean difference between skeletal age and chronological age with the TW3 method of different age groups was −0.7–0.3 in boys and −0.4–0.8 in girls, and with the TW2 method −0.7–1.4 in boys and 0.6–1.9 in girls. The difference between TW2 and TW3 in the adolescent children was more than 1 year.…”

“…Two most preferred clinic attempts for estimating BA are the Greulich and Pyle (GP) method [2] and the Tanner and Whitehouse (TW) method [3,4], and were proposed in 1971 and 1937, respectively. Both methods are dependent on the analysis of the left-hand radiogram, but their characteristics vary widely in the evaluation processes.…”

“…Tanner and Whitehouse (Tanner et al 1983), develop the method Tanner -Whitehouse 2 (TW2) to evaluate the bone development, through X-rays of the lefts hand and wrist, which has had great acceptance for their precision, being used at the present time in numerous countries (Izaguirre de Espinoza et al 2003;Jiménez Hernández et al, 1986;Ortega et al, 2006).…”

“…Además de lo anterior, sin modificar las estimaciones para los estadios de cada uno de los huesos seleccionados, se cambiaron únicamente las asignaciones correspondientes a cada EO. Con estas cifras propusieron el método TW3 (Tanner et al, 2001), lo que ha motivado la necesidad de explorar la conveniencia de utilizar uno u otro método (Büken et al, 2010;Haiter-Neto, Kurita, Menezes y Casanova, 2006;Kim, Lee y Yu, 2015;Ortega et al, 2006;Pinchi et al, 2014;Schmidt et al, 2008).…”
