    Correlation of Color Fundus Photograph Grading with Risks of Early Age-related Macular Degeneration by using Automated OCT-derived Drusen Measurements

    We evaluated automated OCT-derived drusen volume measures in a population-based study (n = 4,512) aged ≥40 years, and its correlation with conventional color fundus photographs (CFP)-derived early AMD features. Participants had protocol-based assessment to capture medical and ocular history, genotyping for SNPs in CFH , ARMS2 , and CETP , CFP-based AMD grading and automated drusen volume based on SD-OCT using built-in software (Cirrus OCT advanced RPE analysis software). Significantly fewer eyes with early AMD features (drusen, hyperpigmentation, soft or reticular drusen) had drusen volume = 0 mm 3 (p < 0.001). In eyes with drusen volume > 0 mm 3 , increasing AMD severity ...
