Selection of Embryo & Transfer

Selection of embryos is a critical step in assisted reproductive technologies, aimed at identifying the healthiest and most viable embryos for transfer. Embryo selection involves analyzing the embryos' genetic makeup and morphology to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy. Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) is one method used for embryo selection, allowing screening for genetic abnormalities before transfer. PGT can detect chromosomal abnormalities, single gene disorders, and structural rearrangements in embryos. Morphological assessment involves evaluating the embryo's appearance, cell number, and symmetry under a microscope. Time-lapse imaging is a technique that provides continuous monitoring of embryo development, aiding in better selection decisions. Comprehensive chromosome screening techniques, such as array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH) and Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), can be used for PGT. Embryo grading systems, such as the Gardner or Cummins criteria, help embryologists rank embryos based on their quality. Embryos selected for transfer should ideally have a high chance of implantation and lower risk of miscarriage.
