Aim: The aim of the study is to assess the effectiveness of ultrasound and elastography in the detection of ectopic pregnancy in women presenting for ultrasound with a clinical suspicion of ectopic pregnancy. Subjects and Methods: Prospective analysis of 40 women presenting for sonography over a 2.5-year period was performed. Women were classified as having a confirmed ectopic pregnancy on the basis of surgery and laparoscopy. Results: The sensitivity and specificity of transvaginal ultrasound for the detection of confirmed ectopic pregnancy was 95.2% and 94.4%, and accuracy was 94.9%. Elastography revealed one case of ectopic pregnancy which was not diagnosed on sonography. Blue eye sign was positive in 100% of patients with transvaginal elastography. Conclusions: Transvaginal sonography elastography in the radiology setting of a tertiary hospital has excellent diagnostic performance for the detection of ectopic pregnancy.
