Remote health services
Realizing the difficulty of access from remote areas and islands that do not have a pediatric endocrinologist in either the Public or the Private Sector, we offer this pioneering service as a first step, until it becomes possible for the child to visit Athens.
In order to make the estimation from a distance, you must:
Send us photocopies of the child health booklet with the pages where the pediatrician writes height and weight measurements
Send us a bone x-ray by courier or in electronic form (where required)
Send us a brief history with the clinical question from the treating specialist pediatrician
You may need to make an appointment by phone with your pediatrician or adult endocrinologist and parents, and there is also the possibility of making an appointment via Skype at the username pedoendo
This procedure can not always replace the visit to our office, which in these cases should be done as soon as possible.
It costs € 100. The amount is deposited in a bank account and we send you the receipt.
We note that this procedure is not about consulting a general pediatrician and adult endocrinologist, a procedure to which we are constantly open and immediately available.
Our remote services
Bone age assessment with the BoneXpert / Bone age evaluation program
Send us the bone x-ray electronically in a DICOM file and we send you the estimate of the innovative BoneXpert electronic program and together with our estimate with the Greulish & Pyle method
Estimation of predicted final height / Growth prediction
If you send us electronically your child's bone age (in DICOM format) and its height along with any previously available height and weight measurements from his health booklet (mandatory and parents' heights) we can make an accurate forecast for final height. Especially useful for athletes.
