Intra-cytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection
Intra-cytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection, or IMSI, represents a more refined version of the ICSI technology. This method is used to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy in patients who have undergone unsuccessful ICSI attempts.
Both methods involve the selection of sperm prior to fertilisation. However, while in standard ICSI the selection is performed at a magnification of x200, in IMSI it is performed at a magnification of x6500; greater magnification renders certain features more easily visible. Approximately 600 children have so far been born as a result of IMSI treatment.
With immediate effect, we now offer this technology to all our patients. Over the past few months, we have performed a large number of IMSI treatments in our laboratory.
