By modifying the illumination of the ordinary microscope, the sectioned image of the object is then available at the image plane but with the unwanted ordinary image superimposed. After processing these composite images by decoding algorithm, the optically sectioned images substantially similar to those obtained by confocal microscope can finally be got. Here in this article, we derive the explicit formula of the image formation by using the mutual intensity theory and thus explain the sectioning ability and the decoding theory of this new sectioning microscope. We can conclude that this kind of selective-illumination microscope is actually a selective-illumination microscope.
