The theoretical basis of an approach towards the inversion of scatter-data is presented. The method is applicable to 3-D imaging, for a variety of radiations, but is specifically developed here for the case of acoustic wave scattering from an inhomogeneous medium consisting of velocity fluctuations. The inversion procedure is exact, and explicitly takes into account all orders of multiple scattering. An interesting feature is that progressively higher resolution of the recovered image is obtained as higher order scattering is progressively incorporated into the inversion procedure. The method represents a hitherto unexplored approach towards the problem of reconstructing an image of an object from the measurement of its scattering amplitude.
