Objective: To explore the value of tomographic ultrasound imaging (TUI) technology in diagnosis of cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP). Methods: Forty-six patients suspected CSP by two-dimensional ultrasound were enrolled. The patients were examined by TUI and MR, and the results were compared with the surgery results. Then the consistence of TUI and MRI was estimated, while the classification of CSP by TUI were compared with the operation. Results: The results of TUI were consistent with the results of MRI (Kappa=0.75). The classification of CSP by TUI was consistent with surgery. Conclusion: TUI has performed well in diagnosing CSP, which can provide real-time dynamic observation of diseased region, shorten the check time, and lower expense. It is worthy of clinical application popularize.
