    New computerized volume measurement method for optic nerve head (ONH) region comparison with measurements by Heidelberg SPECTRALIS optical coherence tomography

    Purpose To introduce an innovative computerized methodology to calculate the volume of the optic nerve head (ONH) region from SPECTRALIS optical coherence tomography (OCT) images, a new parameter called as OCT ONH coronal volume is proposed. Method 47 OCT ONH examinations were obtained, 25 right eyes and 22 left eyes. For each OCT ONH examination, the automated diagnosis by OCT SPECTRALIS was also obtained. This included three parameters: retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, retina thickness, and ONH region's volume. The OCT ONH coronal volume - a new quantitative parameter - was reported for each OCT ONH test. It was generated ...
