                   All of the following clinical information is automatically integrated within GrowthTek's patient reports.  Complete a patient information order form and send GrowthTek your patient's hand-wrist x-ray and optionally the cephalometric x-ray to get important treatment timing information sent back to you.

The following questions and answers will assist you in understanding why it is important for the patient to correlate the timing and nature of the clinical treatment to the unique maturational profile of the patient.  Rational diagnosis and treatment planning requires an understanding of future timing and amounts of expected growth if the best treatment result is to be achieved within the most effective period of time.
