The need of methods and tools that assist in determining the performance of optical systems is actually increasing. One of the most used methods to perform analysis of optical systems is to measure the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF). The MTF represents a direct and quantitative verification of the image quality. This paper presents the implementation of the software, in order to calculate the MTF of electro-optical systems. The software was used for calculating the MTF of Digital Fundus Camera, Thermal Imager and Ophthalmologic Surgery Microscope. The MTF information aids the analysis of alignment and measurement of optical quality, and also defines the limit resolution of optical systems. The results obtained with the Fundus Camera and Thermal Imager was compared with the theoretical values. For the Microscope, the results were compared with MTF measured of Microscope Zeiss model, which is the quality standard of ophthalmological microscope.
