Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assessment of the time of pubertal growth spurt in growing Egyptian [ Time Frame: 3month ]
    Taking xray of middle phalynx finger and then asses age of growth spurt through stages of middle phalynx finger


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. females. Assessment the correlation between the modified middle phalanx of the middle finger and development stage of mandibular second molar [ Time Frame: 3month ]
    By taking xray mandibular second molar then make correlation between stages of both to estimate age for pubertal growth spurt for females
