Intra cytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI)
IMSI is a process of selecting a morphologically superior sperm using a high powered microscopically enlarged digital imaging system. Studies have shown that using IMSI could increase pregnancy rates and reduce miscarriages.
IMSI magnifies the sperm 7000-12000 times the normal size.
Males with high levels of DNA fragmentation or high abnormal forms of sperms are good candidates for IMSI.
IMSI can also be used in couples with recurrent IVF /ICSIfailures.
IMSI Sperm Grading
Grade 1 – No Vacuoles
Grade 2 – < 2 Vacuoles
Grade 3 – > 2 Vacuoles or one large vacuole
Grade 4 – Large vacuoles with abnormal head shapes
According to the WHO, an ideal spermatozoan must have an oval head with a straight tail and a transparent core. The average length of the spermatozoa should be 4.7 +/- 0.28 micro meter and width 3.28=/- 0.20 micro meter.
