SUMMARY by Dr. DALIA BASYONI :
* CBCT cannot replace OPG, which remains our primary imaging modality.
* In complex cases involving multiple findings in different regions, CBCT is more desirable than conventional radiographs.
* Standard operating procedures (SOP) to use CBCT:
• clefts of the lip, jaw and palate and cases of impacted teeth.
