Radiologists assessing bone age using the Greulich & Pyle method must do a manual comparison of digital radiographs from patients with reference images in an atlas, a time-consuming task with a high level of inter-rater variability.
A quick and automated method to estimate bone age according to Greulich & Pyle in a standardized format enables radiologists and physicians to supply quick and accurate assessments of child growth and development. IB Lab PANDA™ is here to help!
Excellent Agreement with expert readers, mean difference only 0.77 months
8.4 sec calculation time, compared to several minutes of manual lookup of the Greulich and Pyle (G&P) atlas
Using IB Lab PANDA reduced measurement differences by ±4.3 months
of radiologists would use IB Lab PANDA for bone age estimation of hand radiographs if cost were no issue
of radiologists perceive IB Lab PANDA to be useful in their medical practice
of radiologists are likely to ask for PANDA to be installed in their practice
IB Lab PANDA uses deep learning technology to report bone age based on the Greulich & Pyle scale and saves time by presenting the results within 5 seconds. IB Lab PANDA’s automated bone age measurement according to Greulich & Pyle is precise to 4.3 months mean absolute deviation 3. The derived adult height estimation according to Bailey and Pineau is precise to ±2.5 cm 4. Standardized measurements and reporting schemes facilitate monitoring of treatment progress, highlights relevant clinical findings by applying the latest international medical standards to enable timely and accurate decision making. The findings are summarized in a visual output report, attached to the original x-ray image and saved automatically in the PACS system. The AI-results are fed as text into your pre-defined RIS-template for accelerated reporting. The AI facilitates monitoring of disease progression by facilitating comparison of radiographic disease parameters over time.
Radiological findings, measurements, and results including:
8.4 seconds for calculating the pediatric bone age according to Greulich & Pyle
100% repeatability and standardization of bone age assessment following the latest clinical standards
Enhances the consistency in reading and reporting of hand radiographs for bone age and height estimation
Facilitates monitoring and forecasting of physicians’ therapeutic success
IB Lab PANDA uses deep learning technology to report bone age based on the Greulich & Pyle scale and saves time by presenting the results within 5 seconds. The system is to be used by trained medical professionals including, but not limited to, orthopedists and radiologists. It should not be used in-lieu of full patient evaluation or solely relied upon to make or confirm a diagnosis.
