Embryo imaging breakthrough increases IVF success

May 16, 2013

The infertility technique is being hailed as the biggest fertility breakthrough in 35 years.

It can be used to track a developing embryo.

Researchers at the care fertility group took thousands of photographs of embryos to pinpoint those least likely to carry chromosomal abnormalities.

Only those most likely to result in a healthy pregnancy were implanted.

The success rate with traditional in vitro is 42% for women under 35.

This new technique raises that to 61%.
