Color Bmode

Color B-mode ultrasound or brightness-mode ultrasound is the predecessor of the gray scale ultrasound. This type of ultrasound is limited to identifying the definition of the boundaries and contours and cardiac structures and to identify solids form fluids. Only echoes that surpass the threshold level of intensity are shown with a uniform brightness on the monitor. This gray scale technique has largely replaced color B-mode ultrasound.
