Fishman IMPORTANT STAGES per growth curve

Question Answer
What stage coincides with a period just before skeletal growth spurt?SMI 4 (initiation SESAMOID ossification) (if the sesamoid is present then you are AT LEAST at SMI 4, if not higher)
What stage coincides with the skeletal Peak Growth Velocity?SMI 6 (capping of middle 3rd phalanx)
What stage coincides with a period after skeletal Peak Growth Velocity and nearing termination of spurt?SMI 9 (third finger proximal phalanx, fusion of epiphyseal plate)
What stage coincides with Termination of Skeletal Growth Spurt?SMI 11 (radius, fusion of epiphysis)
What are the 4 important stages of Fishman Skeletal Maturity Index?4, 6, 9, 11
memorize

Fishman Important stages per Skeletal Maturity Index (SMI)

Question Answer
What are the 4 important stages of Fishman Skeletal Maturity Index?4, 6, 9, 11
What does SMI 4 tell you about growth potential?(if not yet SMI 5) BEFORE growth spurt (has yet to initiate but will soon)
What does SMI 6 tell you about growth potential?(if not yet SMI 6) at PEAK GROWTH velocity
What does SMI 9 tell you about growth potential?(but not at SMI11) AFTER PEAK growth
What does SMI 11 tell you about growth potential?TERMINATION of skeletal growth spurt
memorize

Fishman stages: % of skeletal growth remaining

Question Answer
SMI 1-285-100%
SMI 3-465-85%
SMI 5-625-65%
SMI 7-810-25%
SMI 9-105-10%
SMI 110%
memorize

Fishman stages and their radiographic indicators (then how that correlates to pubertal growth spurt)

Question Answer
SMI 4 sesamoid ossification (beginning) (happens BEFORE growth spurt)
SMI 6capping of middle 3rd phalanx (coincides with PEAK of growth velocity)
SMI 9third finger proximal phalanx fusion of epiphysis (AFTER PEAK, nearing termination, minimal growth remains)
SMI 11Radius fusion of epiphysis (TERMINATION of skeletal growth spurt)
