          Abstract

          The study of embryonic development through conventional microscopy has contributed significantly to the success of IVF. However, clinical pregnancy rates per transfer remain as low as 30% according to the latest records of European society if human reproduction and society if assisted reproduction. Considering the increased need to reduce the number of multiple pregnancies, the embryologist is required to improve embryo selection methods to reduce the number of embryos transferred and identify those with the highest implantation potential. This represents a big challenge considering that applying this strategy could jeopardize the overall success rates. New strategies have been proposed including the use of time-lapse systems among others. Although this technology has been used for a decade in IVF labs controversies still exist regarding its potential to substitute conventional morphology for embryo evaluation.
