Abstract

Diffraction tomography reconstructions of objects from limited transmitted field data sets are discussed together with theoretical analyses and results of numerical experiments. It is shown that limited data sets, representing only a small part of the complete data sets, can be used for reconstructions in diffraction tomography with satisfactory accuracy. We also find that, in diffraction tomography based on the hybrid filtered backpropagation and the first-Rytov approximation, the use of limited data sets can provide a larger range of validity than the use of complete data sets, the reason being that limited data sets pose less-severe phase-unwrapping problems.
