    Aim: The aim of the study is to establish a correlation between changes in cervical vertebrae maturation index (CVMI), median phalanx of the third finger (MP3), and mandibular canine calcification. Materials and Methods: A total of 30 subjects (15 male and 15 female) aged between 11 and 13 years were enrolled. The study was based on a radiographic evaluation of lateral cephalograms, orthopantomogram, and intraoral periapical radiograph of the same patient. The lateral cephalogram was evaluated for the level of maturation of the cervical vertebra, the orthopantomogram showed the stages of canine calcification, and the intraoral periapical radiograph showed the stage of development of the epiphysis and diaphysis of the median phalanx of each individual. The growth status as suggested by each of these skeletal maturity indicators were tabulated and subjected to statistical evaluation. Result: The local Chennai population with an age group of 11–13 years showed that the growth status of the male and female population was the same. Comparison between CVMI and MP3 reveals that, at a given age group, CVMI and MP3 showed a significant difference. CVMI in male patients showed initiation, acceleration, and transition with a greater percentage in initiation contrary to females who were evenly distributed through the different stages. In male patients, most of them were in the prepubertal stage or progress toward puberty. Conclusion: All three methods of assessing growth can be used to predict the developmental stage of the individual although there is no correlation between the three methods.
