Computerized IVF Follicle Measurements are Faster and Give High Success Rates, Says Research from Chicago Fertility Doctors Richard Sherbahn and Todd Deutch

time-consuming for patients and medical staff. This new method is faster, so patients spend less time on the examination table with a vaginal probe."

"The SonoAVC, or automated volume count, software for 3-D ultrasound systems gives a more precise and accurate measurement of the ovarian follicles," explains Todd Deutch, MD, of the Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago, who worked with GE to develop the software.

"A crucial and underappreciated aspect of successful IVF involves determination of ideal timing for the egg retrieval," says Dr. Sherbahn. "Measuring the ovarian follicles accurately is really important during IVF because the number of follicles and their sizes (along with blood hormone levels) are used to determine when we're likely to get the best number of eggs of the highest quality."

"Expertly utilizing the data from those measurements allows us to determine when we should proceed with the 'trigger' injection of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) which causes final maturation of the eggs," Dr. Sherbahn explains. "If you trigger too soon, you get fewer mature and more immature eggs. If you trigger too late, you get post-mature eggs of lower quality."

The Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago is one of the only U.S. fertility clinics using 3-D ultrasound with the new SonoAVC technology. "It is expensive ultrasound equipment, but we believe in investing in technology that can improve our patients' chances for a successful pregnancy," says Dr. Sherbahn.
