A system and method for imaging a sample are provided. In particular, a first combination of light and a second combination of light are received, in which a first cross correlation function is associated with the first combination and a second cross correlation function is associated with the second combination. Each of the first and the second combinations includes a first portion of light which is received from a reference arrangement and a second portion of light which is received from the sample, and a first relative position of the sample associated with the first combination is different than a second relative position of the sample associated with the second combination. In an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the first cross correlation function is transformed into a first complex cross spectral density and the second cross correlation function is transformed into a second complex cross spectral density. Moreover, a third complex cross spectral density can be determined which is approximately an average of the first complex cross spectral density and the second complex cross spectral density.
