Time-lapse embryo incubators have received much attention since their initial application. However, time-lapse or any imaging system only provides the capability of reviewing the process of embryo development. While it might be able to predict embryo development from the cleavage stage to the blastocyst stage, time-lapse technology has not proven to increase pregnancy success rates over standard IVF incubators.
Is there any difference between the success rates of incubators with a time-lapse system incorporated and independent image systems?
