    A New Optical Coherence Tomography Method for Subfoveal Choroidal Thickness Measurement: A Singlecenter Observational Study

    Background : Several macular pathologies are associated with choroidal vascular supply, and thus require choroidal thickness evaluation. However, there is no standard subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) measuring method. This study investigated a new method to measure the SFCT, using optical coherence tomography. Methods : This is a single-center observational study. Eighty-two senior medical students participated as observers and independently measured the SFCT on five standard optical coherence tomography images of healthy adults in a tertiary care setting. They used three different methods: (1) the observer’s own method, (2) the conventional method, perpendicular to the retinal pigment epithelium, and (3) the new ...
