Mr Sayasneh has an h-index score of 11 on Google score with 336 publication citation since 2009. The main thrust of his MD research, since August 2011, is related to 2 arms of the IOTA study. IOTA is an international collaboration designed to produce robust information on the characterisation and long term behaviour of ovarian masses. The IOTA studies recruited over 5000 masses in over 30 countries as has informed national guidelines in many countries including the UK https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Ovarian_Tumor_Analysis_trial. Mr Sayasneh was the main coordinator of the IOTA4 study which was a prospective trial investigating the different models (ultrasound and biomarkers) to characterise ovarian masses (http://www.controlled-trials.com/ISRCTN20772153). Recently, with collaboration with the applied computer science team from Buckingham University, his research team have developed and validated a novel computer software to read static ultrasound images of ovarian masses.
