    Clinicopathologic Correlation of Disc and Peripapillary Region Using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomograph

    Purpose: To describe a technique for evaluating peripapillary and optic nerve head (ONH) anatomy using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) raster scanning in humans and compare quantifiable parameters between diagnosis categories. Methods: Ninety-five eyes of 51 consecutive patients were evaluated in this retrospective cross-sectional pilot study. Cirrus 5-line raster SD-OCTs with a resolution of 5 to 15 [mu]m obtained through the ONH were included. A single observer manually measured neural canal opening (NCO), prelaminar canal depth (PLCD), peripapillary choroidal thickness (PPCT), and canal nerve fiber layer (CNFL) in normals, ocular hypertension, primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), low-pressure glaucoma (LPG ...
