A technique has been developed for carrying out ultrasound reflection tomography using transducers as transmitter-receiver. It has been shown that applying beam divergence angle limitation enhances the clarity of the image and also saves a lot of computer time. Convolution back projection and threshold operation can also help to improve the image.
