Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI)
Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI) is an advanced technique of fertility treatment. It is used in IVF treatments to examine the high-quality sperms and then includes injecting them into the egg for fertilization. This is also said to be the enhanced version of ICSI treatments. For the selection of high-quality sperms, a high-powered microscope is used.
Reasons to choose IMSI
With the help of this microscope, the sperm cells having irregularities can be disposed and hence only the best sperm cells are selected for the further process.
The chosen sperm is then used for the traditional process of ICSI wherein the sperm is microinjected into the mature egg.
