Re: x-ray measurements to check for assymetry
It can also be called Bone Length Study or Teleroentgenogram (probably why they call it a scanogram, too hard to pronounce). When I got to work one of the radiology techs (a mom & friend) looked it up for me. According to the health care system I work for, the manual states it is a CT procedure not a general x-ray. Some of the smaller hospitals may still do it in general x-ray, though.
