This thyroid scan below may not look very interesting, but actually, it tells you a lot. Look how the Colour coding is confined so precisely to the vessels. Siui have got their filters and 2D/colour coding sensitivity absolutely spot on with this model:
Remember that any given pixel can be coded in greyscale as tissue, or coded in colour if flow is detected. To make matters more complicated, tissue can also move (the pulsatile nature of arteries, or the contraction of the myocardium, for example), so the scanner has to also filter out high amplitude movements and be sure not to code these as blood flow. This is why so many systems struggle with colour flow, erroneously coding the pixels of surrounding tissue as colour. Again, the Apogee 1000 Lite gets it absolutely right.
