      A comparison of optic disc area measured by confocal scanning laser tomography versus Bruch’s membrane opening area measured using optical coherence tomography

      Background: Precise optic disc size measurements based on anatomically exact disc margins are fundamental for a correct assessment of glaucoma suspects. Computerized imaging techniques, such as confocal-scanning-laser-tomography (CSLT), which applies operator defined boundaries and optical-coherence-tomography (OCT), which incorporates an alternative detectable landmark (Bruch's-membrane-opening (BMO)), have simplified the planimetry of the optic disc and BMO-area, respectively. This study's objectives are to compare both modalities for area and to define a threshold for macro-BMO using BMO-OCT. Methods: Retrospectively, patients that simultaneously received CSLT and BMO-OCT scans were included. Their images were correlated and agreement was determined using Bland-Altman-analysis. The diagnostic ...

    2. Thinner temporal peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer in Stargardt disease detected by optical coherence tomography

      Thinner temporal peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer in Stargardt disease detected by optical coherence tomography

      Purpose To evaluate peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness measured by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with Stargardt disease (STGD). Methods A cross-sectional, monocentric, observational case-control study. Twenty patients (39 eyes) with ABCA4 mutations graded according to the Fishman STGD classification were included. RNFL measurement was performed using Heidelberg Spectralis SD-OCT. RNFL thickness in STGD patients was compared to age-matched data of healthy individuals provided by the device’s manufacturer. A manual readjustment of the optic disc-fovea angle was performed when needed. Results The mean age at first diagnosis of STGD was 22.9 years (range ...
