Abstract:

Reflections on "Examining the efficacy of six published time lapse imaging embryo selection algorithms to predict implantation to demonstrate the need for the development of specific, in house morphokinetic selection algorithms."

In the article by Barrie et al it is noteworthy that the AUC for all the ESAs was less than 0.63, suggesting that none of the ESAs can be considered as a particularly useful test. Your commentary suggests that other ESAs, such as the algorithm applied in "Early Embryo Viability Assessment" result in higher AUC. Can we be reassured that the AUC for morphokinetic embryo selection is higher than traditional morphology assessment, warranting more widespread use of the technique in the future?
