1. Comparison of Scanning Laser Polarimetry and Optical Coherence Tomography in Quantitative Retinal Nerve Fiber Assessment

    Purpose: To investigate the relationship between retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measurements in corresponding areas obtained with scanning laser polarimetry and optical coherence tomography and to compare their discriminating ability in the diagnosis of preperimetric and perimetric glaucoma. Patients and Methods: Three hundred eighty-six subjects-57 healthy controls, 145 ocular hypertensive patients, 89 with preperimetric glaucoma, and 95 with perimetric glaucoma-were recruited from the Erlangen Glaucoma Registry. Perimetry, 24-hours intraocular pressure profile, stereographic optic disc slides, optical coherence tomography StratusOCT, and scanning laser polarimetry GDx VCC (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc, Dublin, CA) were performed in all patients. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC ...
