In this work, we examine the application of intensity diffraction tomography (I-DT) for imaging three-dimensional (3D) phase objects. We develop and investigate two algorithms for reconstructing phase objects that utilize only half of the measurements that would be needed to reconstruct a complex-valued object function. Each reconstruction algorithm reconstructs the phase object by use of different sets of intensity measurements. We demonstrate that the numerical and noise propagation properties of the two reconstruction, algorithms differ considerably.
