    1. Three-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging for Glaucoma Associated with Boston Keratoprosthesis Type I and II

      Three-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging for Glaucoma Associated with Boston Keratoprosthesis Type I and II

      Precis: 3D spectral domain OCT volume scans of the optic nerve head and the peripapillary area are useful in the management of glaucoma in patients with a type I or II Boston Keratoprosthesis (KPro). Purpose: To report the use of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the management of glaucoma in patients with a type I or II Boston Keratoprosthesis (KPro). Methods: Observational case series. Four consecutive patients with KPro’s were referred for glaucoma evaluation. A comprehensive eye exam was performed which included disc photography, visual field testing, and high-density spectral domain OCT volume scans of the optic ...

    2. Diagnostic Capability of 3D Peripapillary Retinal Volume for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Customized Software

      Diagnostic Capability of 3D Peripapillary Retinal Volume for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Customized Software

      Précis: The diagnostic capability of peripapillary retinal volume is similar to peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness for diagnosing glaucoma, but with fewer artifacts. Purpose: To compare the diagnostic capability of three-dimensional (3D) peripapillary retinal volume (RV) versus two-dimensional (2D) peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness for open-angle glaucoma . Patients and Methods: A retrospective cross-sectional analysis was conducted. A total of 180 subjects [113 open-angle glaucomas (OAG), 67 normal participants] had spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) volume scans and RNFL thickness measurements. Peripapillary RV values were calculated using a custom-designed program with 4 circumpapillary annuli (CA): CA1 ...

    3. Diagnostic Capability of Three-Dimensional Macular Parameters for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Diagnostic Capability of Three-Dimensional Macular Parameters for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Purpose : To compare the diagnostic capability of three-dimensional (3D) macular parameters against traditional two-dimensional (2D) retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness using spectral domain optical coherence tomography. To determine if manual correction and interpolation of B-scans improve the ability of 3D macular parameters to diagnose glaucoma. Methods : A total of 101 open angle glaucoma patients (29 with early glaucoma) and 57 healthy subjects had peripapillary 2D RNFL thickness and 3D macular volume scans. Four parameters were calculated for six different-sized annuli: total macular thickness (M-thickness), total macular volume (M-volume), ganglion cell complex (GCC) thickness, and GCC volume of the innermost ...

    4. Diagnostic Capability of Peripapillary 3D Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Volume for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Diagnostic Capability of Peripapillary 3D Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Volume for Glaucoma Using Optical Coherence Tomography Volume Scans

      Purpose To determine the diagnostic capability of peripapillary 3-dimensional (3D) retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) volume measurements from spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) volume scans for open angle glaucoma (OAG). Design Assessment of diagnostic accuracy. Methods Setting: Academic clinical setting. Study population : 180 patients (113 OAG and 67 normal subjects). Observation procedures : One eye per subject was included. Peripapillary 3D RNFL volumes were calculated for global, quadrant, and sector regions, using four different sized annuli. Peripapillary 2D RNFL thickness circle scans were also obtained. Main outcome measures : Area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUROC) values, sensitivity, specificity, positive ...
