Age of completion of ossification mnemonic

Hello!

For those who forget the age at which ossification centres close, this post is for you!

Imagine the baby in a fetal position, the joints facing upwards are 18,the ones facing downwards are 16:

Elbow = 16
Pelvis = 16
Ankle = 16
Shoulder = 18
Knee = 18
Wrist = 18

This diagram gives the approximate ages when the epiphyses close.
