Computerized IVF Follicle Measurements are Faster and Give High Success Rates, Says Research from Chicago Fertility Doctors Richard Sherbahn and Todd Deutch
Date:12/1/2009

A new clinical study presented to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine shows that three-dimensional (3-D) automated ultrasound follicle measurement using GE's SonoAVC software during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle is effective and more efficient than traditional manual measurement of the follicles.

Gurnee, IL (PRWEB) December 1, 2009 -- The Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago has just completed research on a new computerized 3-D ultrasound system that automatically identifies and measures the developing egg-containing follicles in the ovaries of women undergoing IVF treatment for fertility problems.

"Our clinical study reveals that 3-D ultrasound with the SonoAVC computerized measurement system results in a faster ultrasound procedure which minimizes time in the office and discomfort for the patient," says Richard Sherbahn, MD, who presented the research findings at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

"We were also able to maintain our high IVF success rates when using this technique," Dr. Sherbahn adds. "3-D ultrasound technology has the potential to give us more accurate follicle measurements and can increase the efficiency of the ultrasound monitoring process."

Ovarian follicles have traditionally been measured manually with two-dimensional, or 2-D ultrasound. "Because the egg-containing follicles are often quite irregular in shape, measuring them manually can result in significant inaccuracy," notes Dr. Sherbahn. "Manual measurement of ovarian follicles is also
