Anomalies in the intensity distribution of the scattered high-frequency field when it traverses the same random inhomogeneities as the incident one can be applied for the double-passage imaging of distant objects. Here, we present a possible realization for the resolving properties of an object using the double-passage effects and construct the intensity response at the image plane of an optical system, resulting from backward reflection from a target having discontinuities. The object plane-image plane relations are formulated by using the random propagators of the stochastic geometrical theory of diffraction (SGTD) and the algorithms derived are applied to investigate the resolving properties of periodic spatial patterns.
