    1. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) for detection of macular oedema in patients with diabetic retinopathy

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) for detection of macular oedema in patients with diabetic retinopathy

      Background Diabetic macular oedema (DMO) is a thickening of the central retina, or the macula, and is associated with long-term visual loss in people with diabetic retinopathy (DR). Clinically significant macular oedema (CSMO) is the most severe form of DMO. Almost 30 years ago, the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) found that CSMO, diagnosed by means of stereoscopic fundus photography, leads to moderate visual loss in one of four people within three years. It also showed that grid or focal laser photocoagulation to the macula halves this risk. Recently, intravitreal injection of antiangiogenic drugs has also been used to ...

    2. Reproducibility of Macular Thickness Measurements Using Cirrus Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration

      Reproducibility of Macular Thickness Measurements Using Cirrus Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration
      Purpose: to assess test-retest variability of central and sectorial macular thickness measurements obtained by Cirrus HD-OCT in neovascular age related macular degeneration (nAMD). Methods: Macular thickness measurements of 9 standard ETDRS subfields were obtained and analyzed. To assess the repeatability of macular thickness of Cirrus HD-OCT, the intrasession within subject standard deviation (Sw), coefficient of repeatibility (CR), coefficient of variation (CV) were assessed before and after excluding eyes with retinal segmentation errors. Results: A total of 49 nAMD eyes of 49 consecutive patients were included in the study. The CR for the central macular subfield was 42.4 µm (10 ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography versus Stereoscopic Fundus Photography or Biomicroscopy for Diagnosing Diabetic Macular Edema: A Systematic Review

      PURPOSE. To review systematically the sensitivity and specificity of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for diagnosing macular edema attributable to diabetic retinopathy compared with well-established gold standard tests such as fundus stereophotography or contact and noncontact fundus biomicroscopy. METHODS. Medline and Embase were searched electronically and six major ophthalmic journals from 1998 to 2006 were hand searched. Two reviewers independently assessed trial searches, studied quality with the QUADAS (Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies) checklist, and extracted data. The target disease was clinically significant macular edema (CSME) according to Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) criteria. A bivariate model was ...
