In embryoscopy, fiber optics is used to look into the uterus. It is an advanced form of fetoscopy using a much finer needle, which allows clear view and precise monitoring of an embryo during its early development.
An embryoscopy is the direct visual observation of the embryo between 5 and 8 weeks gestation. This is performed trans-abdominally in the amniotic fluid. An embryoscope is introduced through a small incision on the mother’s abdomen and placed into the amniotic sac through the uterus.
It offers several advantages for the evaluation of the reasons for miscarriage to use the embryoscopy or fetoscopy approach.
In some cases, a fetus can be observed and abnormalities in its development or recurrent genetic syndromes can be identified. Asha IVF and Fertility Centre provides embryoscopy services to women who have been diagnosed with a nonviable pregnancy and who wish to determine the cause of their miscarriage or recurrent pregnancy loss.
