Beam-based local diffraction tomography

Ram Tuvi, Ehud Heyman, Timor Melamed

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, the authors present a beam-based local diffraction-tomography (DT) inversion scheme as an alternative to the conventional Green’s function or plane-wave inversion schemes. The beam waves are used here as basis functions for local phase-space processing of the data and for local backpropagation and reconstruction.
