Korbmacher H, Kahl-Nieke B, Schöllchen M, Heiland M. Value of two cone-beam computed tomography systems from an orthodontic point of view. J Orofac Orthop 68:278- 289, 2007.

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.
