    Glaucoma diagnosis optic disc analysis comparing Cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomography and Heidelberg retina tomograph II

    Purpose To evaluate the diagnostic ability of optic nerve head parameters, measured by Cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) and Heidelberg retina tomograph II (HRT II) to detect concomitant glaucoma. Methods Cirrus OCT and HRT examinations of 62 eyes of 62 patients (32 with no perimetric glaucoma and 30 with concomitant perimetric glaucoma) evaluated between August 2010 and December 2010 were retrospectively analyzed and compared with regard to the optic disc morphometric parameter, disc area, rim area, cup-to-disc ratio (CDR), and cup volume. Receiver operating characteristic curves were constructed for the parameters and areas under the curves (AUCs ...
