I find [1] to be a good reference as well.

If I imagine line pair to be equivalent of 2 pixels, the pixel width isn't
matching with that. Essentially lp/mm is appearing coarser than pixel
width and probably hence called 'true (measured) resolution' and may be
they aren't expected to match.

I tried both: 1. using pixel width compute pixels per meter 2. using
lp/mm, assuming 1 lp is equivalent to 2 pixels compute pixels per meter.

The latter is coming closer to the reality, but not sure it's accurate
enough as yet. May be there was a gap between the finger and the sensor
when trial x ray was taken as our attention was on usb interface rather
than lengths (getting computed length smaller than the actual one of the
portion of the finger). I need to go and gather more x rays carefully (may
be using a coin to make the boundaries more accurate) before confirming
which measure is accurate or whether something else is required or is just
a fixed calibration factor is needed.
