IMSI treatment in Hegde Fertility is a short name for Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection. This procedure is used in both IVF and IVM treatments. In this procedure, the sperms are selected using a highly magnifying microscope in the practice of IMSI in Hegde Fertility.

This process is performed using an inverted microscope that provides greater magnifying power as compared to the common microscope used in laboratories. This magnificent image gives the embryologists detailed information of the specimen sperm head and can discard unhealthy sperms. This selection of the best sperm from the specimen helps the chance for fertilization and decrease the case for miscarriage after implantation of the embryo into the uterus. The sperms with good shape and size signify better genetic quality. Using the IMSI method in the selection of sperms has increased the success rate by 30 to 60% in pregnancy success.
