1. Reproducibility of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer and Macular Thickness Measurement with the RTVue-100 Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose: To evaluate the reproducibility of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) and ganglion cell complex (GCC) measurements made with the RTVue-100 Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) device (Optovue, Inc., Fremont, CA) and to determine the influence of 4 factors: pupil dilation, subject age, experience in imaging examinations, and glaucoma severity.Design: Prospective study for evaluation of a diagnostic test.Participants: Thirty-seven hospital-based participants (14 normal and ocular hypertensive subjects, 11 patients with moderate and 12 with severe glaucoma), all experienced in imaging examinations, and 40 consecutive screening trial participants lacking such experience.Methods: One eye of all participants ...
