The average times for a B-scan are compared in Table 1.
B-SCAN is a major component of the Department's 2006-2009 Strategic Plan and was implemented borough-by-borough.
So if you suspect your boss is a megalomaniac and that beneath their charming persona likes a sadistic control freak, have them tested with the B-Scan -- it could stop them escaping with the petty cash tin!
Precursor RAP lesions were diagnosed based on the appearance of hyperreflective lesions in the outer layers of the retina that originated from the DCN and were characteristically round and well-defined, and typically caused shadowing at the level of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) on B-scan SD-OCT.
An immersion B-scan technique was employed, and the patients were placed in a supine position after superficial anesthesia.
Images of the CPVC5,5 specimen: (a) optical image of the surface microstructure, bar--100 pm; (b) SEM evaluation of the surface, bar--200 [micro]m; (c) acoustic image (C-scan) of the subsurface layer, bar--1 mm; (d) acoustic image (Cscan) of the internal microstructure at the depth of 300 pm from the surface, bar--1 mm; (e) acoustic image (B-scan), cross-section in the central part of the specimen; 1--air bubble.
To extract RPE, they removed retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) from the candidate B-scan where their proposed system achieved an overall accuracy of 100% for ArMd cases and 86.6% for DME cases.

Diagnostic B-Scan Ultrasonography was performed in these patients preoperatively.
Conventional signatures, the time of peak (TOP) and the time of arrival (TOA), are extracted from calculated B-scan images.
Finally, B-scan provided the information to confirm the clinical diagnosis.
Preoperative assessment included best- corrected visual acuity (BCVA), funduscopy with 90D lens and B-Scan ultrasonography in 9 patients was used as fundus was not visualized clinically.
