New IVF technology, AI improves pregnancy rate by up to 80%


Artificial intelligence was mainly used for industrial purposes in the past, and it has finally applied to the treatment of infertility for the first time! That is, to use big data to observe the speed, condition and type of cell division of embryos. This technology is based on the 3rd-generation PGS used in the past to treat women in advanced maternal, suffering from recurrent miscarriages, and having familial genetic diseases.With the big data obtained from the latest AI-embryo image time-lapse monitoring system,it is possible to observe embryos growth without removing the them. In the past, the pregnancy rate of PGS applied to a single embryo implantation was about 50%. After applying this new technology, in 29 cases of high-grade embryos were isolated, 23 cases had successfully gotten pregnant with only one attempt, that is, pregnancy rate is as high as 80%, so it attracts the attention of many domestic and foreign couples with infertile problems.
 

The 3rd-generation of IVF with latestAI has benefited many women who have failed many times. For example, Mrs. Pan, 34 years old, was unable to conceive successfully after 6 years of marriage. After four failed IVF treatments performed in other hospitals, she was introduced by her classmates and referred to our hospital. It was found that the major cause of infertility was the poor condition of the sperm from his husband. After AI technology, one embryo was successfully implanted in the first attempt. The 36-year-old Mrs. Jiang, was unable to conceive for 5 consecutive years after marriage due to insufficient sperm motility and lack of sperm. She was referred by a friend to our hospital after four failed treatments. After using AI IVF, she has also successfully conceived with only using one embryo. Miss He, who was 35 years old and infertile due to hydrosalpinx resection and had four failed experiences before receiving treatment of ours. She had also became a mother after raising the pregnancy rates by the AI big data. Ms. Zhou, 37, hadfallopian tube obstruction and failed IVF for six times in other hospitals. With the advice of our doctor, she used AI IVF to successfully conceive after the first embryo implantation.
 

Such examples are endless, and the excellent 3rd-generation IVF plus AI technology of Lee Women’s Hospital reproductive medicine center has also attracted attention from China, Macau, and also Chinese overseas, especially women in advanced maternal age who have suffered multiple times ofmiscarriages, and couples who have experienced many times of failed artificial conception and IVF. Mrs. Xia, a 35-year-old from Hunan, has immune disease and three miscarriage experiences; she couldn’t have a successfulpregnancy after 8 years of marriage. Later, introduced by friend of her who had been treated successfully, she cameto Lee Women’s Hospital to haveIVF treatment. Fortunately, she succeeded in the first attempt! In addition,a 31-year-old Mrs. Chen who lived in the United States, herself suffering from polycystic ovary, and her husband had a sperm abnormality. She found that the reproductive medicine technology in Taiwan is not inferior to that of the United States, and with the assistance of professional doctors and advanced equipment in Lee Women’s Hospital reproductive medicine center, she successfully conceives her child.
 

The big data obtained fromLee Women’s Hospital reproductive medicine center's multi-million-dollar embryo image time-lapse monitoring system is like applying real time photography to embryo observation, which can continuously observe the growth of embryos. If the development of the embryos is too fast or too slow, it is not good for subsequent embryo implantation or pregnancy. The time point of embryo development and alteration is a reference for observing the quality of the embryo, and it can make up for the lack of observation of the embryo's appearance in the past. Through the microscope applied on this machine, you can observe the development process of each embryo, including the appearance of the embryo, the dynamics of division, and the presence or absence of debris. Photographs are taken every ten minutes as a continuous image slide show to support researchers quickly and accurately grasping the big data and analysis used to find embryonic developmental defects from these images, and then the best quality embryos with normal chromosomes were selected for future implantation. This method can greatly reduce the miscarriage rate and increase the pregnancy rate. Lee's woman hospital reproductive medicine center combines AIwith IVF technology, which is currently leading the world and known as the gospel of infertility patients.
