    Clinical Significance of B-Scan Averaging With SD-OCT
    Averaging multiple scans is a potential advantage of optical coherence tomography. The authors evaluate the qualitative benefits of B-scan averaging on the visualization of outer retinal structures. A retrospective analysis was performed on Cirrus OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA) B-scans from 1 eye of 35 patients referred to the imaging unit who underwent three types of scan acquisitions: no averaging, 4× averaging, and 20× averaging. Masked assessment of quality was made using a qualitative scale of 0 (worst) to 3 according to the ability to identify structure, brightness, and continuity. Quality scores consistently improved with 4× averaging, but improved ...
