    Spectral-Domain versus Time Domain Optical Coherence Tomography before and after Ranibizumab for Age-Related Macular Degeneration

    Purpose: To study the ability to appreciate qualitative features that indicate disease activity in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and to analyze the differences in automated retinal thickness measurement, using 1 time domain optical coherence tomography (TD-OCT) and 2 different spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) machines. Methods: Thirty-three consecutive naïve patients with neovascular AMD underwent Stratus TD-OCT, Cirrus SD-OCT and Spectralis SD-OCT, at baseline, 1 h, 1 day, 1 week and 1 month after intravitreal ranibizumab injection. Results: As regards the ability to detect retinal cysts, subretinal fluid and pigment epithelium detachment, at each follow-up visit, there was a significant ...
