1. Quantitative Subanalysis of Intraretinal Cystoid Spaces and Outer Nuclear Layer using Optical Coherence Tomography in Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration

    Purpose: To quantify intraretinal cystoid spaces (ICS) and the outer nuclear layer (ONL) using optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and to investigate the correlation of these parameters with visual acuity. Methods: StratusOCT images from 53 patients receiving their initial treatment with intravitreal ranibizumab were collected. Images were analyzed using custom software (entitled OCTOR) that allows accurate manual segmentation of OCT B-scans, and provides thickness/volume measurements of ICS, ONL, neurosensory retina, pigment epithelial detachments (PEDs), subretinal fluid (SRF) and subretinal tissue (SRT). Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to correlate OCT parameters with ...
