This contribution deals with the effect of the background removal procedure on GPR data for an inverse scattering algorithm funded on the Born Approximation in the simple case of a scalar two-dimensional geometry. The effect is examined with regard to both the problem of the extraction of scattered field data from the total field data and to the performances of the reconstruction approach. As it will be shown, the background removal amounts to a spatial filtering of the available reconstruction and, depending on the kind of target looked for, it can be very useful but also quite useless or even harmful.
