A method and apparatus for inspecting an object in a virtual reality environment. Computed tomography scan data for the object is identified. A first group of dimensions for a model of the object and a second group of dimensions for the computed tomography scan data for the object are adjusted such that the first group of dimensions for a first group of features in the model corresponds to the second group of dimensions for a second group of features in the computed tomography scan data. The model and the computed tomography scan data are displayed by a game engine in the virtual reality environment on a display system. Graphical indicators in the virtual reality environment are displayed when a difference is present between features in the model and the features in the computed tomography scan data, enabling identifying the difference between the object and the model of the object.
