Is it right to say:

Fig. 4, Show the wireless transmission of data.

Shouldn't it be:

Fig. 4, Shows the wireless transmission of data.

By the way, another question would be, is it right to use both of mentioned forms in an academic paper? I mean, some one writes Fig. 4, shows in a paragraph and in another, in the same paper, writes Fig. 4, show?

The correct form is:

Fig. 4 shows the wireless transmission of data.

No comma after 4 and lowercase shows.
