This work proposes a novel approach to determine the L/D based on the concept of Rocking Curve - RC which does not require expensive test-objects. This is done by a visual inspection of images of an experimental radiograph unfolded with Richardson-Lucy algorithm under several Point Spread Function (PSF) widths s, and selection of the better quality  amidst them.
