Integration of AI tools into the workflow of the embryology lab

Dr. Marcos Meseguer, MS, PhD

The use of artificial intelligence in the field of reproductive medicine today focuses on the analysis of large amounts of images of eggs, embryos and sperm to provide a better result in reproduction treatments, this should be used as a tool that provides support to both the doctor and the embryologist in decision making. When investigating which embryo is better at the time of embryo transfer and achieving a pregnancy and finally a live newborn, of course there are limitations and in relation to precision medicine a greater use of AI in reproductive treatments is expected. AI aims to be able to offer personalized reproduction treatments to each patient.
