Abstract

This study developed a method to predict finger/phalange bone lengths from a surface hand length. 41 Korean college students (25 males and 16 females) were recruited, and their surface hand lengths and finger/phalange bone lengths were measured using a vernier caliper and a X-ray generator, respectively. The conversion method developed equations to estimate finger/phalange bone lengths based on one surface hand length by relationships among the measured finger/phalange bone lengths. The average estimation error between the estimated bone lengths and measured bone lengths was 1.76 mm (2.3 %) with SD = 0.3 mm on finger bone lengths and 0.99 mm (3.2 %) with SD = 0.4 mm on phalange bone lengths. The estimated finger/phalange bone lengths had strong correlations, more than more than r = 0.8, with the measured finger/phalange bone lengths.
