The distorted Born iterative method (DBIM) is applied to solve electromagnetics and ultrasonics inverse scattering problems. First, we use the DBIM to process the data, which are the scattered fields from two- dimensional cylinders with arbitrary cross section. From this simulation, we confirmed that the first-order Born approximation can be applied to larger objects as long as the phase change of a wave passing through the object due to its presence is smaller than a limit. Then we applied DBIM to process the ultrasonic measurement data. Images for a balloon and an egg that are immersed in water have been reconstructed and compared with those from the first order diffraction tomography (DT).
