Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) values are calculated according to I.A. Cunningham and A. Fenster "A method for modulation transfer function determination from edge profiles with correction for finite-element differentiation" (Med Phys. 1987 Jul-Aug;14(4):533-37). Authors demonstrate how MTF can be calculated from the profile from an edge using the Edge Spread Function (ESF) and the Line Spread Function (LSP) applying a correction for taking into account that ESP and LSP are finite-element functions.
