The article describes skeletal maturation applied in medicine to estimate biological development of a human being. The method, devised by Baccetti and co-workers (CVM method – Cervical Vertebral Maturation) to determine the moment of pubertal growth basing on a lateral cephalogram, was presented. On the basis of the existing method, a program which determines a CVM stage basing on characteristic points, was written. The list of the results repeatability in traditional assessment as well as with the use of the program is presented in the article.
