Introduction: Estimation of stature from length of long bones is of practical importance and has to be population specific. Work on estimation of stature in living subjects from radius length is limited. We attempted to develop a predictive equation for stature from radius length. Methodology: Stature and length of radius were measured in 510 healthy adult Bengali men aged between 21-50 years. Scatter plots were constructed with regression lines to correlate height with length of left radius… Expand
