A spiral X-ray computed tomography (SXCT) is developed for clinical body examinations in diagnostic radiology. SXCT provides volumetric imaging that can visualize prominent features, relationships, and locations between the bone, soft tissue envelope, and prosthesis shape in multiple 3D orientations and 2D slices. The ability to view the residual limb in situ with a load applied to the prosthesis will enable to visualize soft tissue changes and the bone's positions within the residuum in reference to the prosthesis. The maps and visualizations provide insight into the potential causes of prosthesis fitting problems to help make appropriate design changes.
