IMSI (Intra-Cytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection)

Intra-Cytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection

At Mother To Be, we have the latest technology called Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI), which is suitable for men who have very less sperm count.

The embryologists or scientists who do ICSI select the best sperm through the magnification. Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) represents a more sophisticated way of ICSI whereby, the individual sperm is selected at higher magnification-6000 times as opposed to traditional ICSI where the sperm is magnified only around 400 times. IMSI helps to assess the structure of the sperm better so that sperm with abnormalities are excluded and most normal looking sperm is used for injection.

Why perform IMSI?

IMSI is suggested to improve the fertilization rates and normal embryo development in men with severe male factor subfertility.

Who is the right candidate for IMSI?

  • Men with very high number of morphologically abnormal sperm
  • Sperm retrieved from testes
  • Poor outcomes with previous ICSI treatments.
