    Repeatability and Reproducibility of Retinal Thickness Measurements in Diabetic Patients with Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    Background : To determine the repeatability and reproducibility of optical coherence tomography (OCT) Spectralis retinal thickness measurements in diabetic patients with clinically significant macular edema (CSME). Methods : Twelve eyes of 12 volunteers (without macular pathology – control group) and 21 eyes of 21 diabetic patients with CSME were included in the study. Reproducibility, repeatability, intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) and intrasession correlation coefficients were tested with 20 × 15 degree raster scans consisting of 19 high-resolution line scans that were repeated three times by two experienced examiners. Results : In the control group, examining all regions, coefficient of repeatability was less than 1.1%, while ...
