1. Diagnostic Comparison between Macular and Peripapillary Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Measurements by Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Normal-Tension Glaucoma

    Purpose: To evaluate and compare the glaucoma discrimination ability of macular inner retinal layer (MIRL) thickness with that of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL) thickness measured by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (RTVue-100) in normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) patients. Methods: Sixty-five healthy and 102 NTG subjects were enrolled. MIRL thickness provided by Ganglion Cell Complex (GCC) scan and two RNFL thickness measured by the NHM4 (RNFL1) and RNFL 3.45 (RNFL2) modes were analyzed. The areas under the receiver operating characteristic curves (AUCs) of MIRL and pRNFL thicknesses, for discriminating NTG patients from controls, were determined. The AUCs were compared between ...
