I am a 19 year old male and i have done a bone age xray of my wrist/hand to determine my bone age, reason is that i had planned on using growth hormone therapy to help me grow taller. now i was told after that these bone age imaging of the wrist are not enough to determine whether a 19 year old will grow any taller as the maximum age they predict is 19 which is my age. i was told that a pelvic imaging is best for people above the age of 19. my question is should i consider a pelvic xray to help determine whether growth hormone will work for me?
