    Better performance of RTVue than Cirrus spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in detecting band atrophy of the optic nerve

    Abstract Background  To assess the agreement and diagnostic performance between retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements obtained using the Cirrus (Carl Zeiss Meditec) and RTVue (Optovue Inc.) devices for detection of band atrophy (BA) in patients with permanent temporal hemianopia. Methods  In this retrospective study, 26 eyes with BA and 64 control eyes were enrolled. The Cirrus optic disc cube protocol and the RTVue optic nerve head map protocol were used. The Cirrus measurements were extracted and regrouped to be topographically matched with the RTVue measurements. Concordance correlation and 95 % limits of agreement were assessed. Areas under the receiver ...
