-4. What is IMSI?

IMSI stands for Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection.

In this procedure the sperm is enlarged 7000 times using a special optical lens. This helps us select sperm which are normal in shape and size and have a normal nucleus (part where the genetic material is stored). In our experience the use of IMSI has increased pregnancy rates in men with male infertility and in those who have failed ICSI in the past cycles.

The IMSI microscope also allows us to inspect eggs at a high magnification so that the quality of the eggs can be assessed better.
