Finally, it is concluded that the noninvasive nature and easy applicability of carotid B-mode ultrasound
makes it suitable for screening of atherosclerosis.
Muscle architecture of the vastus lateralis (midway between the lateral condyle and greater trochanter of the femur) was determined using B-mode ultrasound
as described previously (12).
Results of their study showed that combined B-mode ultrasound
and elastography had 83.3% sensitivity, 88.1% specificity, 92.5% NPV, 75% PPV and diagnostic accuracy of 86.7% which is greater than conventional ultrasound alone.

Furthermore, only lung-sliding and comet-trail-artefacts could have been evaluated with the B-mode ultrasound
. Since the used ultrasound machine did not support M-mode, additional important signs such as "seashore sign" and "lung-point-sign" could not have been analyzed.

Intra-rater reliability of B-mode ultrasound
imaging of the abdominal muscles in healthy adolescents during the active straight leg raise test.
The sensitivity of B-mode ultrasound
imaging is approximately 90%.
In the meanwhile, its value and reliability have been corroborated by many studies and clinical practice.[sup] Conventional B-mode ultrasound
can be used to estimate the degree of synovial inflammation by measuring the thickness of synovial lining.
Tendon geometry was assessed via B-mode ultrasound
imaging utilizing a standard ultrasound with extended field of view capability at 10 MHz (GE LOGIQ*e, GE Healthcare, Wauwatosa, WI, USA).
Shear wave velocity measurements provide an objective and quantitative evaluation of tissue stiffness, which may add important information complementary to B-mode ultrasound
homogeneity for diagnosis of SS.
Previous research using B-mode ultrasound
has suggested that MTrP present as spherical, elliptical and/or even band-like hypoechoeic (dark gray) regions.
facilitates display of the cross section of the IJV and, therefore, measurement of the area and perimeter variation during the cardiac cycle .
