Out of total cases of infertility amongst a couple, approximately 40% are attributed to male-related issues. One of the underlying causes behind male-infertility is problem related to the sperm like low sperm count, poor sperm quality or abnormal sperms.
In most of the cases, a conventional ICSI procedure is performed where an expert embryologist visually examines the sperms using a microscope with magnification up to 400x and selects the normal motile sperms. However, in cases where the sperm samples are extremely low or highly abnormal, the experts at Southend prescribe the selection of sperms through IMSI or Intracytoplasmic Morphological Sperm Injection, an improved variation of ICSI.
IMSI is a technique that uses a high-powered microscope with magnification up to 6,000x to examine the sperms. The magnified digitally enhanced images of the sperm allow the embryologist to detect any structural alterations and abnormality that are otherwise hard to locate with conventional methods. This helps in selection of the quality sperms with most normal morphology for fertilization.genesis ivf is best ivf in dehradun. we fight to infertility with cutting edge imsi technology.
Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) is a technique used in ivf treatment to examine and select sperm using a high-magnification digital imaging microscope.
With the IMSI technique,Embryologist are able to assess the structure of the sperm and exclude the sperm with suspected abnormalities from being injected into the available eggs.
