Objective: To trace the evolutionary pattern of the two bone matrices (protein and inorganic) during the period of formation of the bone support structure throughout adolescence, according to the new concepts of bone biology 13.

Method: One hundred and ninety-two subjects aged between 10 and 18 years, healthy by clinical evaluation, were submitted to bone biophysical profile screening in the distal metaphysis of the proximal phalanges of the fingers II-V, of the non-dominant hand.

Results: In the age group between 10 - 14 years, the qualitative parameter (bone protein matrix) revealed a higher value in the female group with p < 0,01. From the age of 15, the values in favor of the male were reversed. The quantitative parameter (inorganic matrix) in the age group between 10-14 years presented higher value in the female group with p < 0.001. From the age of 15, the male group overcame the female group from the age of 15.

Conclusion: The screening of the Bone Biophysical Profile revealed pulses with increasing and progressive elevation, in both sexes, both in number and in the amplitudes of ultrasound pulses. The innocuous technology when simultaneously tracking the two tools characterized the physiological and evolutionary pattern during the adolescence phase; during female puberty, the values were higher than that of male puberty. Simultaneous screening of the two matrices, in a specific site, is the current scenario of The New Bone Biology throughout adolescence.
