  • Reviews and assesses recent developments in sperm selection for ART, including the use of Motile Sperm Organelle Morphology Examination (MSOME)
  • The first text available on MSOME and microinjection of morphologically selected sperm (IMSI) that enlightens readers on new developments in the field of sperm selection techniques
  • Edited and written by a group of skilled scientists and urologists who are specialists in male infertility

Non-Invasive Sperm Selection for In Vitro Fertilization summarizes and discusses the relevant literature on the various advanced sperm selection methods used in modern Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). Chapters review some of the major unresolved issues in the field, the feasibility and success of the various sperm selection methods, their safety and the effects they have on sperm quality and ART outcomes. The book makes recommendations on clinical applications and future research, while helping to elucidate the benefits and promise of non-invasive sperm selection techniques. A distinguished team of scientists, embryologists, and urologists, with expertise in male infertility and ART, contributes to this original and valuable reference guide meant for academics, researchers, and professionals in the field of reproductive medicine who need an update on the current status of the study and practice of non-invasive sperm selection techniques.
