A good age indicator
Re the argument of the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center that an X-ray of
the wrist would be ''inherently unreliable'' in determining the age of
Haitian migrant Ernesto Joseph (Haitian X-rayed in age inquiry, Nov. 7
I have been a registered radiologic technologist for about 40 years, with
the last 10 of those years spent working with world-class orthopedic
surgeons. The X-ray of the left wrist and hand are legitimate procedures
used to determine bone age.
I didn't see any medical credentials attributed to Cheryl Little of FIAC.
She is mistaken on this issue. They are certainly not inherently unreliable.
BEVERLY ENGELKING, Miami
