Determining Best Practices in ART May Require Novel Approaches: A Call for New Ideas
Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is a curious blend of medical practice and scientific technical expertise. Unlike much of medical practice, fertility treatment involves not only the patient’s body and physician’s expertise but also the skills of laboratory technicians to produce healthy embryos. As embryologists readily acknowledge, there are almost as many clinic-specific variations on in vitro fertilization protocols as there are IVF programs (436 programs reported to the Center for Disease Control – CDC in 2008). With so much variation, how can the field determine best practices and evolve to benefit patients?
