Paper Abstract

Modern andrology laboratories or departments evaluate sperm to analyze male ejaculate and to determine male infertility. The evaluation includes the sperm's physical properties, sperm morphology and sperm progression. Among all these characteristics, sperm progression is a predicator ofmale fertility and is used in assisted reproduction programs. The analysis of sperm progression is based on the kinematic measurement of the sperm's motion. With the purpose of quantitatively measuring sperm's progression by using image processing methods and then providing an assessment of sperm motility without the need for complex equipment, in this paper a low cost, high efficient PC-based CASMA system is presented that is suitable for laboratorial reproduction research and clinical requirements.
