Here is a really interesting piece on new developments in the foot medicine field.Unfortunatly due to cost this particular technology will likely only be available in research institutions. 
The technology combines the unique capabilities of 2D xrays with 3D imagining. It unfortunately does not allow for the image to be delivered in a dynamic mode. That`s to say we cannot see inside the foot while someone is walking.
In our clinical practice we try to achieve the greatest level of diagnosis and understanding utilizing 2D X-rays and dynamic H-definition video gait analysis using our Pedigait technology. 
Hopefully further research utilizing this new system will continue to expand our knowledge and diagnostic capability for those of us in clinical situations.
