A method for imaging through highly scattering media is described that consists of forming a multiplicity of holograms and performing an extensive averaging process. This process produces an estimate of the phase distribution across the exiting surface of the medium. This information is combined with the available magnitude data to form an ensemble-averaged wave front that can be backprojected to form an image of absorbers within or behind the scattering medium.
