Keywords:Olecranon process, epicondyle, trochlea, Karnataka
70(35 male and 35 females) children aged between 11 to 18 years were studied for ossification of elbow joint
radiologically, 4(11.4%) were 11 years 5(14.2%) were 12 years, 7 (20%) were 13 years of age, 5(14.2%)
were 14 years, 3(8.57%) were 15 years were 16 years, 3 (8.57%) were 17 years and 4 (11.4%) were 18 years
