SFRplus Quadrants
The chart corner quadrants are defined as follows:
In the table below, the center square is Row 0, Column 0 (R0,C0), and Row number R increases from top to bottom. Note that some squares are not included in a quadrant. Chart quadrants are detected automatically; no changes to the input (Edge ID file, etc.) are needed.
Region | Row R, Column C |
Center | -1 ≤ R ≤ 1; -1 ≤ C ≤ 1 |
UL | R ≤ -1; C ≤ -2 |
LL | R ≥ 1; C ≤ -2 |
UR | R ≤ -1; C ≥ 2 |
LR | R ≥ 1; C ≥ 2 |
Quadrant results
Imatest SFRplus calculates the mean, minimum, and maximum of each quadrant (Center, UL, UR, LL, LR) and the location of the lowest minimum and highest maximum,
then calculates the minimum of the means and the difference between the maximum and minimum of the means.
Here are some results from the JSON output for secondary readouts and quadrants.

Pass/fail results
To obtain pass/fail results for quadrants and saturation, the lines shown in boldface below (all optional) should be added to the pass/fail ini file. Comments shown in red are not a part of the file.

Secondary_readout_1_outer_quadrant_mean_min_min = .25
the minimum of the mean values of the corner quadrants (the smallest of the four means) for secondary readout 1.
Secondary_readout_2_outer_quadrant_delta_max = .15
the maximum difference between the highest and lowest mean values of the corner quadrants (UL, UR, LL, LR)
for secondary readout 2 (MTF @ 0.125 C/P, i.e., Nyquist/2).
