Glauber theory for nucleus-nucleus scattering at high incident energies is reformulated so as to also be applicable to the scattering at intermediate energies. We test the validity of the eikonal and adiabatic approximations used in the formulation, and discuss the relationship between the present theory and the conventional Glauber calculations using either the empirical nucleon-nucleon profile function or the modified one including the in-medium effect.
