The goal of deconvolution microscopy for phase-contrast imaging is to reassign the optical blur to its original position and to reduce statistical noise, thus visualizing the cellular structures of living cells in three dimensions and at subresolution scale. The major features of this technology for a phase-contrast microscopy are discussed through a series of theoretical analyses. A few of possible sources of aberrations and image degradation processes are presented. The theoretical and experimental results have shown that deconvolution microscopy can enhance resolution and contrast by either subtracting or reassigning out-of-focus blur.
