Caption: X-ray of a child's hand. Coloured X-ray of the hand of a child suffering from delayed bone growth. The child in question is 12 years and 10 months old but, at 1 metre 35 centimetres tall, is only the height of a 10 year old. The hand itself is physiologically normal, but is not the size it should be considering the age of the child. The eight wrist (carpus) bones, known collectively as the carpal bones, can be seen. The carpal bones articulate with the bones of the forearm, the ulna (lower left) and radius (lower right), to form the wrist joint (middle). From the carpal bones, the five metacarpals extend through the palm and join to the phalanges, the finger bones.
