Introduction
Morphological assessment of embryo quality has been the method of embryo selection for embryo transfer since the very beginning of the application of assisted reproductive technology (ART) in infertility treatment (1-5). However, there is no known single morphological charcteristic available to enable a simple method for embryo viability assessment. Different grading  methods have been developed and utilized in selecting embryos for transfer (6-14). The necessity of developing a unifying  standard method of grading and reporting embryo quality as acceptable to all has long been recognized.
