Here is a free, full text article that talks about using 3D CT for a precise measurement of things like femoral and tibial torsions and versions. Remember that this will directly influence the amount of internal and external rotation of the hip, which will have a direct influence on gait. Remember you need 4-6 degrees of internal and external rotation to ambulate normally
