The Atlas of Human Embryology: from Oocytes to Preimplantation Embryos

This atlas, published in Human Reproduction in August 2012 (volume 27, supplement 1) is a free-access document. The atlas contains 4 chapters: the oocyte, the zygote, the cleavage stage embryo, and the blastocyst. 

Atlas of Oocytes, Zygotes and Embryos in Reproductive Medicine

* Marc Van den Bergh, Fertility Laboratory, Kantonsspital Baden
* Thomas Ebner, Landes- Frauen- und Kinderklinik, Linz
* Kay Elder, Bourn Hall Clinic, Cambridge

The assessment and selection of oocytes and embryos is fundamental to the live birth rate data of all IVF units, the parameter that is used to gauge a clinic's success and credibility. This new atlas contains over 1000 high-quality images of oocytes, zygotes and embryos, presented with accompanying data on indications for treatment, stimulation type and duration, as well as short medical histories of each couple and final outcome of treatment. All images in the book can be downloaded from the accompanying CD-ROM. Structured on a patient-by-patient basis, the atlas describes 100 clinically documented case studies that follow the evolution of oocytes and zygotes between day two and day five. Pronuclear morphology and synchrony as well as embryo morphology are reported and described for each case. Written and produced by experienced embryologists, this practical atlas is an important resource for clinical embryologists and physicians in reproductive medicine.
