The hybrid input-output algorithm is a phase retrieval method that provides solution for the phase problem of coherent X-ray diffraction imaging of micro- and nano-objects from the diffraction pattern alone without using any focusing optics. In this paper, we have studied a tolerance of this algorithm to missing information at the center of the diffraction pattern, which is a frequent problem in problems of small-angle scattering. We considered the particular problem of the stability of the algorithm in the case of scattering from an ordered structure and provided a qualitative and quantitative description of the degradation of image reconstruction with an increase in the amount of missing information.
