The scope of this project was to investigate the possibility of application of Image Processing Technique in the field of Shaft Alignment process. Misalignment of shaft using image processing software Visionbuilder was calculated. The further purpose of this project was to check whether the image processing technique can be used in bone transplant surgery. The model of the hip was used for the experimentation purpose. Image processing software Visionbuilder was used to match the profiles of the bone before implant and bone after implant.
