New IVF Technique That Uses Images of Embryos to Pick the Best One Is Hailed as the ‘Most Exciting Advance in Fertility Treatment for 40 Years’
January 15, 2018
(Daily Mail) – A new IVF method that takes thousands of pictures of embryos to select the best eggs has increased the likelihood of a baby being born by 25 per cent. The developing embryos are photographed while in incubators every 10 to 20 minutes and then sent to a computer to rank the eggs using algorithms. Research including 24,000 documented treatments led by leading fertility expert Professor Simon Fishel compared IVF babies born with and without the new technique.
