Using the embryoscope to take IVF patients for a ride

Many IVF clinics claim to use an embryoscope to culture embryos in vitro. While this provides great video images of the developing embryos, it has not been proven to improve IVF pregnancy rates. However, patients are quite happy to pay extra for this, because the doctor claims this is the "latest advance", and that's fine.

However, the tragedy is that these doctors actually are just fooling the poor patient, and they never use the embryoscope at all for them - they just claim to !

This is because they refuse to give patients the video generated by the embryoscope ! The absence of the video is proof that the embryoscope was never used !

The tragedy is that patients are still poorly informed, which means it's surprisingly easy to take them for a ride in order to make a quick buck. It's clinics like this which give all IVF clinics a bad reputation !
