    Diagnostic ability of macular nerve fiber layer thickness using a new segmentation software in glaucoma suspects

    Purpose. To assess the capacity of internal retinal layer thickness measurements made at the macula using new spectral domain OCT software (Spectralis OCT, Heidelberg Engineering) to distinguish between healthy subjects and those with suspected glaucoma. The diagnostic performance of such measurements was also compared with that of conventional peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements. Methods. The study included 38 subjects with suspected glaucoma and 38 age-matched healthy subjects. In one randomly selected eye of each participant, thickness measurements at the level of the macula were made of the nerve fiber layer (mRNFL), the ganglion cell layer (GCL) and ...
