    Early detection of retinal thickness changes in diabetes using Optical Coherence Tomography
    Background: Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is a severe and widely spread eye disease. Thus, an objective test for the early diagnosis and evaluation of treatment in DR is certainly needed. In this study, the ability of intraretinal layer segmentation to locally detect early retinal changes in diabetic patients is assessed using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Material/Methods: Fifty diabetic patients with no or minimal DR underwent ophthalmic examination, OCT and fundus photography. Automated segmentation of intraretinal layers of the OCT images was performed using a custom-built algorithm. Mean thickness of the macula and intraretinal layers of patients with no DR (DM ...
