In Compression Elastography-Mode the user presses gently against the patient in slow approximately 1 mm pushes and the UltraVision displays the relative compressions. If the tissue is hard it translates and does not compress and in this case is expressed as red. If the tissue is soft and compliant it compresses and in this case is shown as blue. There are shades of lighter colors to green for the intermediate cases. If there is no backscatter to cross correlate the displacements on the space is filled with pink as in this case the carotid has insufficient backscatter as does the far field.
