A-Mode though not used clinically routinely is implemented in the UltraVision to support quality control functions and demonstrate that the transducer has all its elements functional and so is implemented in a diagnostic mode.
A-Mode is the echo (or backscatter) amplitude expressed vertically versus time expressed horizontally. The horizontal axis is in analog to digital converter clocks and the vertical axis is expressed in digitalizations which in most cases is -4096 to 4096 but is very dependent on the type of data selected. The axis can be magnified down to one clock and one amplitude value. The data can be : Raw-RF, Hilbert RF, Hilbert and Square Root of the Sum of the Squares (Acoustic line Data), and Sum of all channels Acoustic line data.
