    Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and scanning laser polarimetry in glaucoma diagnosis
    Purpose To evaluate glaucoma diagnostic capability of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) imaging by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (Cirrus OCT) and scanning laser polarimetry (GDx VCC). Methods We imaged 88 glaucomatous and 77 healthy eyes using both devices. Areas under the receiver-operating characteristic curves (area under the curves, AUCs) and sensitivities at fixed specificities of average, superior, and inferior RNFL thickness were compared. Likelihood ratios (LRs) and diagnostic agreement based on normative classifications yielded by both devices were determined. Results The best performing parameter was the nerve fiber indicator (NFI) in GDx VCC and inferior RNFL thickness in Cirrus ...
