Dr Wouter Froyman graduated in medicine (“magna cum laude”) at KU Leuven in 2011, after which he began his training in obstetrics and gynecology. Since 2015, he works as a doctoral researcher in the International Ovarian Tumor Analysis (IOTA) group, in collaboration with Professor Dirk Timmerman. The subject of his thesis is the development and validation of diagnostic methods (i.e. in imaging, ultrasound in particular) for the management of patients with adnexal masses, with a focus on the investigation of the long-term behavior of adnexal lesions followed conservatively (IOTA phase 5). He is also coordinating the ongoing studies IOTA phase 7 and IOTA-MRI.
Besides gynecological ultrasound, his main clinical practice covers colposcopy and hysteroscopic/laparoscopic surgery at the University Hospitals of KU Leuven.
