As image acquisition and display systems continue to increase in resolution, accurately measuring their performance becomes more and more difficult due to the lack of standardization in measurement procedures. A method is needed for measuring the performance of an imaging system that can be duplicated easily and inexpensively. This paper presents a simple method of determining the modulation transfer function (MTF). Although there are more precise methods of obtaining the MTF, the method presented here can be performed simply and inexpensively. In addition, it minimizes the effects of error terms, thus facilitating the comparison of similar imaging systems. For the purpose of comparison these error terms, in most cases, are small enough to be considered insignificant. There is a brief explanation of some of the limitations associated with imaging systems followed by a sample data set.
