One of my first actions as the new President of AAOMR has been to contact AAO to set up a joint activity to develop guidelines for use of diagnostic imaging in Orthodontics. The AAO responded positively to this joint initiative. Dr. Mansur Ahmad is the newly appointed AAOMR Position Paper Editor and will be setting up the task group for the AAOMR component of this activity. Use of CBCT in Ortho will be one of the issues to be addressed. The AAOMR anticipates several new position papers on a variety of topics will be developed and that existing guidelines will be updated. These activities have been designated as very high priority by the AAOOM Executive Council.

I'm sure many of you have seen the attached (it's a give-and-take from the March issue of Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop). For those of you who haven't read it, I thought you would find it interesting.
