It is a new dimension to the procedure of ICSI. Normally the procedure of ICSI is carried out at a magnification that is twenty fold.
The IMSI procedure uses a specialized lens which magnifies the sperm seven thousand times. This makes isolation of normal-looking sperm easier.
This is particularly useful when there is severe male factor infertility, with a large proportion of abnormal looking sperm, very compromised sperm motility and count and repeatedly failed IVF procedures.
