We use cubic-phase plate imaging to demonstrate an order-of-magnitude improvement in the transverse resolution of three-dimensional objects reconstructed by extended depth-of-field tomography. Our algorithm compensates for the range shear of the cubic-phase approach and uses camera rotation to center the reconstructed volume on a target object point.
