Interferometric tomography in the presence of an opaque object has been investigated. In principle the developed iterative algorithm does not need to augment the missing information. It is based on the successive reconstruction of the difference field, the difference between the object field to be reconstructed and its estimate, in the defined region only. The application of the algorithm results in stable convergence.
