Introduction: The aim of this study was to assess the global contribution to cervical elastography research in PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science databases. Materials and Methods: PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science databases were queried without language restrictions for records present up to January 2016. All indexed publications under cervix elastography were retrieved. All meta-informations present in the databases were locally stored and used for the analyses. Results: The absolute number of publications included was 107. The top four countries to publish on the argument were USA (23 publications), UK (16 publications), Germany (5), and Poland (5). Finally the most researched areas were cervical ripening in labor induction, pre-term delivery prediction, and cervical cancer analysis. Conclusions: Although interest in this field has greatly increased in recent years, original articles on this topic are still limited.
