A signal processing algorithm based on the frequency analysis of ultrasonic echoes has been tested on a variety of computer generated objects. These objects represented a range of structures ranging from regular arrays of scatterers to more complex distributions. It is apparent from the simulations that this proposed algorithm converges rapidly, is independent of processing parameters and can quantize the scatterer distribution. We have named this method the envelope correlation spectrum or ECS.
