Fig. 1: Echogenicity is a term used to describe the degree of contrast in shades of gray.

Transparent fluids such as bile or a serous effusion are hypoechoic. Muscle tissue or liver tissue is also hypoechoic. Strongly reflecting structures such as bone, the capsule of an organ, or even a recent hematoma will be hyperechoic.
