An ultrasonic imaging system is presented for diagnostics of post discotomic scarring. The system images parameters derived from a Maximum Likelihood Estimation of generalized K-distribution parameters. This approach is capable to discriminate between Rayleigh-, structural- and Pre-Rayleigh scattering. The system uses multidirectional echo data of the same cross-sectional plane, obtained by a 5 MHz sector scanner that is linearly moved over the human back. This leads to a resolution of the parameter images of approximately 1 mm×1 mm
