Personal profile


My area of research is gynecological and obstetric ultrasound. In 1997 I started the International Ovarian Tumor Analysis (IOTA) collaboration together with four other European colleagues. Now the IOTA collaboration has coworkers in more than 40 centers all over the world. The aim is to develop methods to non-invasively and correctly discriminate between benign and malignant adnexal masses (www.iotagroup.org).

We are also studying the natural history of ovarian/adnexal lesions with benign ultrasound morphology left in situ in the body (funded by the Swedish Research Council).

I am also in the steering committee of the International Endometrial Tumor Analysis (IETA) collaboration founded in 2008. Its aim is to develop methods for reliable ultrasound diagnosis of endometrial pathology, for predicting lymph node metastases in patients with endometrial cancer and for determining the extent of endometrial cancer pre-operatively (ultrasound “staging”).

Together with colleagues in Gothenburg I am currently coordinating a Swedish National multicenter study on ultrasound measurements of cervical length in pregnant women for prediction of preterm birth (funded by the Swedish Research Council).
