There are 6 ossification centers around the elbow joint. These ossification centers all appear at different ages and they all fuse to the adjacent bones at various ages.


C-R-I-T-O-E: 
Capitellum (1)
Radial head (3)
Internal (medial) epicondyle (5)
Trochlea (7)
Olecranon (9)

External (lateral) epicondyle (11)


The ages at which these ossification centers appear are highly variable, but as a general guide, remember 1-3-5-7-9-11 years.
