1. Artifacts on the Optic Nerve Head Analysis of the Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucomatous and Nonglaucomatous Eyes

    Purpose: To determine the frequency and type of imaging artifacts in the optic nerve head (ONH) analysis protocol of the optical coherence tomograph (Stratus OCT) in healthy and glaucomatous eyes. Design: Retrospective study. Methods: Two experienced operators reviewed imaging obtained in 264 eyes from 264 participants (146 controls, 118 glaucoma patients). Each participant had a minimum of 3 scans using fast ONH protocol. Only scans with good quality were included in the study. Results: Thirty-two eyes (12%) had imaging artifacts in at least one of the radial scans distributed as follows: 12 eyes showed incorrect identification of vitreous-retinal surface plane ...
