KIDScore D3 far superior to standard morphology
“Studies from our clinic have shown that KIDScore D3 basic was far superior to standard morphology for selecting embryos which resulted in ongoing pregnancy. Furthermore, our studies showed that morphokinetics offered much better evaluation consistency between users. I recommend using KIDScore D3 basic tool to provide objective assessment of embryo development on day 3 when selecting embryos for clinical use.”

KIDScore D3 implemented as a routine
“In our IVF lab in Tel-Aviv Medical Center, Israel, we have 3 EmbryoScopes in which most of the embryos are incubated since august 2012 (>25,000,000 embryos by now). In November 2014 we implemented the KIDScore D3 model and immediately started using it as a routine, in addition to the other models and scoring systems that we have. In preparation for ET, our routine work now includes:
1) the regular static evaluation;
2) morphokinetic analysis including the use of 2 models, one of which is the KIDScore D3 model.
We find this model very easy to use and 93% of the embryos receive a score (only 7% missing data), since the morphokinetic parameters needed for receiving a score are limited and are therefore usually annotated. When analyzing our KID positive data with this model we found that 83% are grade 4 or 5, and only 2% are grade 1.
Our conclusion by now is that the KIDScore D3 model is very helpful especially when many embryos are available for transfer, and for those with “intermediate” grading, in which it is quite difficult to select those with the better implantation potential with the regular parameters.”
