In brief: No

At 4 weeks gestational age (2 weeks after the missed expected menstrual period) it would be extremely unlikely to positively identify an ectopic on ultrasound.
Ectopic may be suspected based on 4-week ultrasound, but until 5 or better 6 weeks ega ultrasound should not be considered absolutely diagnostic.
