Abstract
The relationship between computed tomography (CAT) and diffraction tomography (DT) is investigated. A simple condition with a clear physical meaning is derived for the applicability of CAT. Corrections due to scattering are incorporated into CAT, and it is shown that the effect of scattering may be characterized by a two-dimensional fractional Fourier transform. The implications of these results for the three-dimensional imaging of weakly scattering objects are also discussed.

- Very recently a method somewhat analogous to DT was proposed that circumvents the need for measurement of the phase. Instead, one measures the power scattered by the object when it is illuminated simultaneously by pairs of plane waves [ P. S. Carney, E. Wolf, and G. S. Agarwal, “Diffraction tomography using power extinction measurements,” J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 16, 2643–2648 (1999)]. However, as yet the method has not been tested experimentally.
