Human visual system detects details in coloured images better. Sometimes interpretation of details in gray scale ultrasound images becomes harder. So in this work pseudocoloring of ultrasound images using empirical mode decomposition (EMD) is proposed. EMD doesn't use base function so it has more advantages than Fourier and wavelet transforms. The proposed method pseudocolored image by assigning two dimensional images to red, green and blue color channels. The images obtained by the proposed method are more preferred when compared with the results in the literature.
