There is a series of tests that both men and women must undergo in order for our doctors to determine whether infertility issues exist. A semen analysis is one of the tests our Dallas, Texas physicians use to study the motility of a man's sperm.
CASA or the computer assisted semen analyses helps the laboratory determine count motility, so we could that give that information to the physicians, so they can determine whether the patient is a male factor and determine the different treatment options whether it be intrauterine insemination, ivf, or traditional insemination or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. It makes the life of the andrologist very easy because it is very simple but very accurate machine and instrument. Traditional methods are manual analysis are done on traditional microscope using a counting grid and it is very tedious and slow process. In high-volume labs such as ours that is what makes the computer assisted semen analysis machine a real plus.
