a display of ultrasonic echoes in which the horizontal axis of the visual display represents the time required for the return of the echo and the vertical axis represents the strength of the echo. The mode is used in echoencephalography. See also A-mode.

A-mode ultrasound

In ultrasonography a display in which imaging data are represented as echo amplitudes (on the y-axis) and time (on the x-axis), similar to the way electromagnetic waves are represented on an oscilloscope.

We digitized the A-mode ultrasound signal using a high-speed analog-to-digital converter card at a sampling rate of 100 MHz (Gage model CS82G, Gage Applied Technologies, Inc; Lockport, Illinois).
Although this control strategy works well, in future work we will simulate the SEMG-based 1-DOF prosthetic hand to collect the SMG from both the extensor and flexor with a multichannel A-mode ultrasound system for higher control accuracy.
