To use the model, physicians complete an online form and receive an automatic assessment. The model takes into consideration both the woman’s and man’s factors and integrates all the various parameters to give a certain prediction. It was created by Dr Moshe Wald, assistant professor of urology in the UI College of Medicine, and based on previous research and software developed by Dr Craig Niederberger.
It has been difficult to predict whether pregnancy will be achieved for couples when different factors are at play. Said Dr Wald, who trained under Niederberger and specializes in male infertility.
We designed this computational model to help the physician who is planning IVF/ICSI for patients. The physician may use the model to plan the best approach and counsel the patients appropriately.
