    Automated Segmentation of Optic Nerve Head Structures with Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose: To quantify and characterise the difference between automated and manual segmentation of optic nerve head structures with spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods: Optic nerve head radial scans in 107 glaucoma patients and 48 healthy controls were conducted with SD-OCT. Independent segmentations of the internal limiting membrane (ILM) and Bruch's membrane opening (BMO) were performed manually with custom software and with an automated algorithm in each radial scan. The minimum distance between BMO and ILM, termed BMO-minimum rim width (BMO-MRW) was calculated with each segmentation method. Absolute differences between automated and manual segmentations of ILM (ΔILM) and BMO ...
