Enter the bone age and height correction multiplier into the calculator to determine the bone age height.

Bone Age Height Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the bone age height.

BAH = (BA * HCM) + HCA


  • BAH is the bone age height BA is the bone age HCM is the height correction multiplier HCA is the height correction addition

To calculate the bone age height, multiply the bone age by the height correction multiplier, then add the height correction addition to the result.

What is a Bone Age Height?

Bone age height is a measurement used in pediatric medicine to assess the maturity of a child’s skeletal system. It is determined through an X-ray of the hand and wrist, comparing the development of the child’s bones to standard growth charts. This information can help doctors diagnose growth disorders, predict future height, and determine the appropriate timing for certain medical interventions.

How to Calculate Bone Age Height?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bone Age Height using the given formula:

  1. First, determine the value of Bone Age (BA).
  2. Next, determine the value of Height Correction Multiplier (HCM).
  3. Next, determine the value of Height Correction Addition (HCA).
  4. Next, insert the values of BA, HCM, and HCA into the formula: BAH = (BA * HCM) + HCA.
  5. Finally, calculate the Bone Age Height (BAH).

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Bone Age (BA) = 8

Height Correction Multiplier (HCM) = 1.5

Height Correction Addition (HCA) = 2
