This is a repository of radiograph examples (X-rays) of the pediatric (children) skeleton by age, from birth to 15 years. Ages are approximate (generally, at most +/- 1-2 months, but mostly within + / – 15 days – unless stated otherwise). Male and female subjects are intermixed. These normal bone xrays are NOT intended as bone-age references!
Each bone, , represents an image different from the next one, but still within the same localization and age depending on the column and row they are in.

This site has been made in order to have a quick “reference” look at normal pediatric bone xrays from the ages of day 1 up to 15 years. As I and new colleagues constantly had to look up different ossification centers and compare with the present children bone xray at the time – I found having a little library of bone xrays available was very helpful. Normal children chest xrays are also included.
The images chosen are unedited and most importantly they are in RAW-format (not compressed). Hence the loading times can be slightly above normal, but with zero loss of quality in these normal bone xrays of the children skeleton.
The images on BoneXray.com have been quality assured and verified by a senior consultant and specialist in pediatric radiology.
