A system for radiation imaging of an object in response to echo signals from a target area of the object, such as a region of the anatomy of a body. Data is obtained by time domain measurements at monostatic transducers which can be disposed in different locations. The data is processed by two-dimensional Fourier transformations reconstructed using a mapping function and which compensates for variation in the radiation pattern at the various detector locations by using a phase correction function which avoids the need for Fresnel or plane wave approximations.
