"A simple approach to measure computed tomography (CT) modulation transfer function (MTF) and noise-power spectrum (NPS) using the American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation phantom," Med. Phys. 40, 051907-1 - 051907-9 (2013).
To calculate the 1D radial (axial) MTF and 3D NPS using CT data of the American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation phantom.
Two consecutive scans of the phantom are needed. The program requires a data directory to be selected in which there are only two subdirectories containing only CT slices corresponding to the third module of the phantom. Be careful of partial volume effects with surrounding modules.
