A new tool in the battle to get pregnant

A new in vitro fertilization tool is making all the difference.

The Cleveland Clinic is using an embryo incubator with a sophisticated camera to capture the embryo development every 15 seconds. Dr. Nina Desai says this allows the dishes to stay in the incubator to examine then instead of removing them.

The doctor says being able to really see the embryo changes helps to better determine which embryo will lead to a successful pregnancy.

Desai says," In the past we've never been able to see that, to evaluate what characteristics are associated with an embryo that is more likely to implant."
