BoneXpert Online is currently not a medical device and is not yet approved for clinical use. It is currently undergoing verification. If you need to use BoneXpert for clinical use, we advise that you look at our other products.
The intended use of BoneXpert is to perform an automatic determination of bone age and bone health index (BHI), and to predict adult height from the bone age. The bone age determination can replace the conventional manual rating. The hand radiograph must be provided as a DICOM file.
