    Evaluation of posterior vitreous detachment using ultrasonography and optical coherence tomography

    Purpose To compare the diagnostic ability of ultrasonography (US) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) in evaluating posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) status. Methods In total, 124 eyes in 63 patients were prospectively enrolled. Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) status was evaluated by two examiners independently using US and OCT (transverse scan with/without peripapillary scan). By combining all examination results from both examiners, a final agreement on the PVD status was made. Inter‐observer agreement and inter‐examination agreement on PVD detection were evaluated. Results The inter‐observer agreement on PVD grading based on US was substantial (kappa = 0.628). The inter ...
