ARCH Participates in Key Research to Improve IVF Success for Families

Dr. Christopher Huang

Advanced Reproductive Center of Hawaii’s Medical Director, Christopher T. Huang, M.D. provided patient data for a clinical study that analyzed a new quantitative, non-invasive approach to embryo selection most likely to result in a sustained pregnancy. His brother, Thomas T. Huang, M.D., was the lead author of the article and published the results of the study in Reproductive BioMedicine Online.

“This new technique to evaluate the best embryo to implant could replace older, subjective grading practices, reduce the chance of multiple pregnancy and miscarriages, and is non-invasive and potentially less expensive than Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing (PGT-A),” said Dr. Christopher Huang. A new, larger study using more advanced digital imaging techniques and artificial intelligence algorithms is underway. Doctors hope that the findings will add value to embryo selection to enhance IVF success rates for families.
