The article should appear in a special issue in Summer or Fall this year. The whole issue will be devoted to CBCT and does address both legal issues and selection criteria. I will be editing that issue. Allan G. Farman

I just finished writing an article for Seminars in Orthodontics on medico-legal issues related to CBCT. It is, of course, up to the editors to decide if it will be published, but it may address some of the issues being raised on Oradlist (I could not cover every conceivable medico-legal issue). Perhaps you will find it helpful if/when it is published. Naturally, I don't think it's right for me to say anything substantive at this point until Seminars in Orthodontics either publishes it or rejects it, hopefully the former.

I am curious to understand what legal problems can be avoided by using CBCT. There are clinical situations whereby CBCT can identify factors that will positively or negatively affect prognosis. CBCT can assist in identifying risks from diseases and risks for certain surgical procedures. Legal problems are affected by local standards and local/district/regional/national/international laws.
I would appreciate some discussion on ORADLIST about avoiding legal problems with CBCT or any other type of imaging modality. If favorable to Ricardo, I would also be happy to moderate this part of the discussion.
