Routine computed tomographic studies can be utilized as a substrate to provide an accurate three-dimensional representation of osseous abnormalities, which are faithfully reproduced. Using the programs 3D82 and 3D83 developed by the Section of Medical Imaging, Department of Radiology, University of Pennsylvania, we have been studying all craniofacial clefts presenting to the South Australian Craniofacial Unit since the beginning of 1982. As will be clearly seen, the beauty of this technique is the ability to inspect the bony anatomy completely from any angle, including inspection from within the cranial cavity.
