We demonstrate the feasibility of bidirectional image transmission through a physically thick scattering medium within its memory effect range by digital optical phase conjugation. We show the bidirectional transmission is not simply the consequence of optical reciprocity. We observe that when the spatial light modulator (the device performing the digital optical phase conjugation) is relayed to the middle plane of the medium, the memory effect will be fully exploited and thus the transmitted images will have maximum field of view (FOV). Furthermore, we show that the FOV can be expanded n times by performing n times wavefront measurements.
