This paper proposes the use of phase shift migration for ultrasonic imaging of layered objects and objects immersed in water. The method, which was developed in reflection seismology, is a frequency domain technique that in a computationally efficient way restores images of objects that are isotropic and homogeneous in the lateral direction but inhomogeneous in depth. The performance of the proposed method was evaluated using immersion test data from a block with side-drilled holes with an additional scatterer residing in water. In this way, the method's capability of simultaneously imaging scatterers in different media and at different depths was investigated. The method was also applied to a copper block with flat bottom holes. The results verify that the proposed method is capable of producing high-resolution and low-noise images for layered or immersed objects.
