A system for performing quantitative phase-contrast confocal microscopy includes a light source that emits light, a first beam splitter that splits the emitted light into an illumination path and a hologram path, means provided along the illumination path for delivering a first part of the emitted light to an object as a collimated line, a light sensor that captures light reflected off of the object to obtain an intensity image for the collimated line, and means provided along the hologram path for delivering a second part of the emitted light to the light sensor at an off-axis angle to obtain an off-axis hologram for the collimated line.
