On a limited-view reconstruction problem in diffraction tomography.


Diffraction tomography (DT) is an inversion technique that reconstructs the refractive index distribution of a scattering object. We previously demonstrated that by exploiting the redundant information in the DT data, the scattering object could be exactly reconstructed using measurements taken over the angular range [0, phimin], where pi < phimin < or = 3pi/2. In this paper, we reveal a relationship between the maximum scanning angle and image resolution when a filtered backpropagation (FBPP) reconstruction algorithm is employed for image reconstruction. Based on this observation, we develop short-scan FBPP algorithms that reconstruct a low-pass filtered scattering object from measurements acquired over the angular range [0, phi(c)], where phi(c) < phimin.
