Abstract The distorted Born iterative method (DBIM) is used to solve two-dimensional inverse scattering problems, thereby providing another general method to solve the two-dimensional imaging problem when the Born and the Rytov approximations break down. Numerical simulations are performed using the DBIM and the method proposed previously by the authors (Int. J. Imaging Syst. Technol., vol.1, no.1, p.100-8, 1989) called the Born iterative method (BIM) for several cases in which the conditions for the first-order Born approximation are not satisfied. The results show that each method has its advantages; the DBIM shows faster convergence rate compared to the BIM, while the BIM is more robust to noise contamination compared to the DBIM.
