ESHRE Campus 2023 Krakow

Choosing and using embryos: novel approaches to embryo selection

ESHRE Campus workshop

SIG Embryology   

organised by the  ESHRE Special Interest Group Embryology

Course description

Efficient embryo selection is a crucial step for the successful outcome of an IVF/ICSI cycle. In addition to morphology grading, several approaches are currently available in the IVF laboratory for the evaluation of embryo viability and developmental competence, including time-lapse technology, invasive and non-invasive methods. This course will review the principles, efficacy, safety and indications for the use of these approaches, presenting the latest published data.
