Dr. Nina Desai, of the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, said that embryos are extremely dynamic and change, which reflect a lot about the competence of an embryo to implant on the uterine wall.

More than 100 patients at the Cleveland Clinic have been able to start families because of this high-tech tool; it is now being used at 14 other medical centers across the country.
