Abstract
We process a set of data measured with a prototype ultrasonic scanner developed by the Norwegian company Norwave Development AS, Oslo, Norway in collaboration with the American company A.J. Devaney Associates, Boston, Massachusetts. In particular, we apply signal processing algorithms, recently developed by the authors to locate known test objects in a fluid background. Possible applications of the research include locating and identifying cancerous tumors in human tissue. These and other avenues for future research are discussed in the paper.
