    Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography Compared to Ultrasound and Biomicroscopy for Diagnosis of Posterior Vitreous Detachment

    Background: Biomicroscopy, B-scan ultrasound imaging, and SD-OCT are all modalities used to characterize a posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). Our objective is to assess the precision of the diagnosis of PVD by SS-OCT. Methods: This prospective observational study examines ninety-five eyes of forty-nine patients with biomicroscopy, B-scan ultrasound, and SS-OCT for the presence or absence of a complete PVD. All SS-OCT images were reviewed by two retina specialists (RWSC, ZM). All three diagnostic methods were evaluated for agreement by Cohen’s kappa statistic. Results: The inter-rater reliability between retina specialists reading the SS-OCT images was 97.9% (κ = 0.957). Agreement on ...
