    Automated thresholding algorithms outperform manual thresholding in macular optical coherence tomography angiography image analysis

    Introduction For quantification of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) images, Vessel Density (VD) and Vessel Skeleton Density (VSD) are well established parameters and different algorithms are in use for their calculation. However, comparability, reliability and ability to discriminate healthy and impaired macular perfusion of different algorithms are unclear, yet, of potential high clinical relevance. Hence, we assessed comparability and test-retest reliability of the most common approaches. Materials and methods Two consecutive 3×3mm OCTA en face images of the superficial and deep retinal layer were acquired with swept-source OCTA. VD and VSD were calculated with manual thresholding and six automated ...
