Bob Keim: The Editor's Corner 

Bias vs. Science in Clinical Decision-Making

. . .In my very first JCO interview, I was the interviewee rather than the interviewer, as our Senior Editor, Dr. Gene Gottlieb, questioned me about the science of statistics and its application in clinical orthodontic research. One of the major points of that interview was that the results of presumably valid, statistically analyzed, evidence-based papers need to be evaluated by individual practitioners within the context of their own actual experience, sophisticated judgment, and critical-thinking skills.. . . 

On the cover: Superimpositions of three-dimensional volumetric images are shown in the article by Dr. Park and colleagues.
