Artificial Intelligence-Embryo Selection Process

One of the most critical steps in In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is the selection of the embryos to be implanted. It is the method of reviewing the health of fertilised embryos and choosing the finest & healthiest embryos for transfer. Artificial Intelligence (AI) based embryo selection procedure has recently been developed and is currently utilised at Indira IVF to enhance and automate the embryo grading and selection process.

What is Artificial Intelligence-Embryo Selection Procedure?

Indira IVF boasts the most recent AI innovation, termed "Life Whisperer," accessible at its 110+ centres nationally in collaboration with Presagen. The Artificial Intelligence embryo selection procedure is a computerised process that evaluates embryos to determine which one is most likely to survive and be transferred. While using deep machine learning to tens of thousands of embryo pictures from across the globe with documented outcomes, it can recognise complex morphological characteristics and patterns that are invisible to the human eye. Life Whisperer evaluates patient embryos' photos to determine their quality, assisting the embryologist in choosing the embryo that has the best chance of succeeding.

This advanced AI tool is supported by a wealth of scientific data, clinical data, and multiple recent publications, including two in Nature Scientific Reports, two in Human Reproduction, and a current piece in Reproductive Biomedicine Online (RBMO). Additionally, Life Whisperer is frequently mentioned in international fertility conferences hosted by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine & the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology. This AI-based method reduces the number of cycles required for a successful pregnancy through enhanced embryo selection and improved pregnancy forecasting in IVF.

There are the following steps involved in Artificial Intelligence-Enhanced Embryo Selection Procedure: 

  • The AI programme will be updated with microscopic photos of each blastocyst.
  • According to each blastocyst's capability for implantation and chance of conceiving a child, an exact score (called an "AI Score") will be created in a matter of minutes.
  • The blastocyst with the best ratings will be considered for transfer into the mother's womb.


How is the AI-Embryo Selection Procedure different from the Current IVF Process?

During ovulation, sperm is directly inserted by professionals into the uterine cavity, or they are extracted to fertilise the egg in controlled lab conditions. The embryo is being assessed with AI, and only the optimum embryo with the highest likelihood of successful pregnancy is implanted. Each patient who utilises "Life Whisperer", an AI-based embryo selection tool, will also receive a report of the AI results on their embryos as a memory as well as to offer more transparency and trust to their IVF process.

In contrast, in current IVF procedures, the Embryo assessment is done manually as per embryo scope scoring standard, which is inferior to what AI can do. Therefore, the AI-based process, having high level of accuracy, is an excellent addition to IVF to increase the chances of pregnancy and get only high-quality embryos implanted as required.

In order to improve the success rates of IVF for patients in India and throughout the world, Indira IVF and Presagen have a long-standing relationship to continue advancing AI in reproductive technologies and delivering optimum results.
