Paper Abstract

Correction factors are computed for pinhole images of x-ray tube focal spots to be applied along the anode-cathode dimension and the dimension perpendicular to the anode-cathode axis. These correction factors are based upon comparison of MTF's of focal spots with uniform intensity distribution to the MTF's of focal spots with single and double peaked intensity distributions.
