IMSI – Intra-cytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection
IMSI takes ICSI to the next level. ICSI involves us injecting sperm directly into your egg, before we transfer it into your womb. During IMSI, we use a very high power microscope to magnify the sperm around 7000 times. The equipment is more complex and expensive when compared to ICSI This allows us to see in great detail how the sperm looks and to select the best sperm for the ICSI procedure. IMSI is a very new development and is showing promise for a specific group of patients. If we feel you are going to benefit from IMSI we’ll discuss this with you. Once the best sperm has been selected the IMSI procedure is carried out in exactly the same way as ICSI.
The first IMSI baby of Malabar region was born out of the treatment at ARMC IVF Calicut in the year 2012. If you would like more information, please contact us.
