1. Comparison between confocal scanning laser tomography, scanning laser polarimetry and optical coherence tomography on the ability to detect localized retinal nerve fiber layer defects in glaucoma patients

    Background/Aim: To compare the ability of confocal scanning laser tomography (CSLT), scanning laser polarimetry (SLP) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) in recognizing localized retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defects. Methods: 51 eyes from 43 patients with glaucoma were identified by two observers as having RNFL defects visible on optic disc photographs. 51 eyes of 32 normal subjects were used as controls. Three masked observers evaluated CSLT, SLP and OCT images to determine subjectively the presence of localized RNFL defects. Results: Interobserver agreement was highest with OCT, followed by SLP and CSLT (mean kappa: 0.83, 0.69 and 0 ...
