In non-Rayleigh distributed radar images, the number of scatterers can be viewed as a Poisson distributed random variable, with the mean itself random. When this mean is Gamma distributed, then the image classically satisfies the K distribution. We add three new possible distributions for this mean: inverse Gamma, Beta of the first kind, and Beta of the second kind. We show that new intensity distributions so obtained can be estimated, with the interest of the extension validated on a real image.
