    Bruch’s Membrane Opening-Minimum Rim Width Assessment With Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Performs Better Than Confocal Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy in Discriminating Early Glaucoma Patients From Control Subjects

    Purpose: To compare the diagnostic performance and evaluate diagnostic agreement for early glaucoma detection between a confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope (CSLO) and a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Patients and Methods: Fifty-five eyes of 55 open-angle glaucoma patients and 42 eyes of 42 healthy control subjects were enrolled in this observational, cross-sectional study. All participants underwent comprehensive ophthalmic examination, visual field testing, and optic nerve head and retinal nerve fiber layer imaging by CSLO (HRT3) and SD-OCT (Spectralis OCT). The agreements of categorical classifications were evaluated (κ statistics). Area under receiver operating characteristic curves (AUROC) and sensitivity at 95% fixed specificity ...
