Dear Dr. Briefly, my daughter developed breasts between 7-8 years old. At 8.1 years old, bone age 10 years, Tanner stage 2-3, Height 132 cm. Now, 6 month later, at 8.5 years old, height 137.81cm, weight 76 pound (36.8 kg), tanner stage 3. This time, we did x-ray bone age test, but we are not so sure the results since we have heard two different one, one is 10.5 years old the other 11.1. I understand this reading is quite subjective, but still wonder which one is more useful for predicting the future height. My question here is to ask you give your opinion on this x-ray bone age scan (see attachment).
