This paper discusses the reconstruction of sectional images from a hologram generated by optical scanning holography. We present a mathematical model for the holographic image capture, which facilitates the use of inverse imaging techniques to recover individual sections. This framework is much more flexible than existing work, in the sense that it can handle objects with multiple sections, and possibly corrupted with white Gaussian noise. Simulation results show that the algorithm is capable of recovering a prescribed section while suppressing the other ones as defocus noise. The proposed algorithm is applicable to on-axis holograms acquired by conventional holography as well as phase-shifting holography.
