      Factors Affecting the Ability of the Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomograph to Detect Photographic Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Defects

      Purpose To evaluate the ability of normative database classification (color-coded maps) of spectral domain optical coherence tomograph (SDOCT) in detecting wedge shaped retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defects identified on photographs and the factors affecting the ability of SDOCT in detecting these RNFL defects. Methods In a cross-sectional study, 238 eyes (476 RNFL quadrants) of 172 normal subjects and 85 eyes (103 RNFL quadrants with wedge shaped RNFL defects) of 66 glaucoma patients underwent RNFL imaging with SDOCT. Logistic regression models were used to evaluate the factors associated with false positive and false negative RNFL classifications of the color-coded maps ...

      Comparing Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography and Standard Automated Perimetry to Diagnose Glaucomatous Optic Neuropathy

      Purpose: To compare the abilities of standard automated perimetry (SAP) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) in diagnosing eyes with glaucomatous optic neuropathy (GON). Methods: In a cross-sectional study, 280 eyes of 175 subjects referred to tertiary eye care center by general ophthalmologists for a glaucoma evaluation underwent retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and ganglion cell complex (GCC) imaging with SDOCT. All subjects had at least 2 reliable and repeatable SAP. Two glaucoma experts masked to clinical and SAP results classified the optic nerves into GON and nonglaucomatous groups based on digital optic disc photographs. Ability of SDOCT parameters and ...

    4. The ISNT rule in glaucoma: revisiting with spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      The ISNT rule in glaucoma: revisiting with spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Purpose To evaluate the ability of the neuroretinal rim (NRR) rules determined using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) in diagnosing glaucoma and to study the effect of optic disc size and disease severity on the diagnostic ability of these rules. Methods In a cross-sectional study, 125 eyes of 96 glaucoma patients and 96 eyes of 72 control subjects underwent optic nerve head (ONH) imaging with SDOCT. Inferior (I), superior (S), nasal (N) and temporal (T) NRR areas were automatically determined by the sdoct software. Diagnostic abilities of ISNT (I > S > N > T), IT (I > T) and ST (S > T ...

    5. Reference Standard Test and the Diagnostic Ability of Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma

      Reference Standard Test and the Diagnostic Ability of Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma

      Purpose: To evaluate the relationship between the reference standard used to diagnose glaucoma and the diagnostic ability of spectral domain optical coherence tomograph (SDOCT). Methods: In a cross-sectional study, 280 eyes of 175 consecutive subjects, referred to a tertiary eye care center for glaucoma evaluation, underwent optic disc photography, visual field (VF) examination, and SDOCT examination. The cohort was divided into glaucoma and control groups based on 3 reference standards for glaucoma diagnosis: first based on the optic disc classification (179 glaucoma and 101 control eyes), second on VF classification (glaucoma hemifield test outside normal limits and pattern SD with ...

    6. Effect of Scan Quality on Diagnostic Accuracy of Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma

      Effect of Scan Quality on Diagnostic Accuracy of Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma

      Purpose To evaluate the effect of scan quality on the diagnostic accuracies of optic nerve head (ONH), retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), and ganglion cell complex (GCC) parameters of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) in glaucoma. Design Cross-sectional study. Methods Two hundred fifty-two eyes of 183 control subjects (mean deviation [MD]: −1.84 dB) and 207 eyes of 159 glaucoma patients (MD: −7.31 dB) underwent ONH, RNFL, and GCC scanning with SD OCT. Scan quality of SD OCT images was based on signal strength index (SSI) values. Influence of SSI on diagnostic accuracy of SD OCT was evaluated ...

      Effect of scan quality on diagnostic accuracy of spectral domain optical coherence tomography in glaucoma

      Purpose To evaluate the effect of scan quality on the diagnostic accuracies of optic nerve head (ONH), retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and ganglion cell complex (GCC) parameters of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in glaucoma. Design Cross-sectional study. Methods 252 eyes of 183 control subjects (mean MD: -1.84 dB) and 207 eyes of 159 glaucoma patients (mean MD: -7.31 dB) underwent ONH, RNFL and GCC scanning with SD-OCT. Scan quality of SD-OCT images was based on signal strength index (SSI) values. Influence of SSI on diagnostic accuracy of SD-OCT was evaluated by receiver operating characteristic (ROC ...

    8. Ability of different scanning protocols of spectral domain optical coherence tomography to diagnose preperimetric glaucoma

      Ability of different scanning protocols of spectral domain optical coherence tomography to diagnose preperimetric glaucoma

      Purpose: To evaluate the ability of optic nerve head (ONH), retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and ganglion cell complex (GCC) parameters of spectral domain optical coherence tomograph (SDOCT) in detecting preperimetric glaucoma. Methods: In a cross-sectional study, 34 preperimetric glaucoma eyes (34 patients) and 72 control eyes (72 subjects) with large physiologic optic disc cupping underwent ONH, RNFL and GCC imaging with SDOCT. Preperimetric glaucoma was diagnosed in the presence of glaucomatous optic neuropathy on masked evaluation of optic disc photographs by two glaucoma experts and normal visual fields. Ability of SDOCT parameters to discriminate preperimetric glaucoma eyes from eyes ...

    9. Effect of Spectrum Bias on the Diagnostic Accuracy of Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma

      Effect of Spectrum Bias on the Diagnostic Accuracy of Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma

      Purpose. To evaluate the influence of a control group on the diagnostic accuracy of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in early glaucoma. Methods. In a diagnostic, case–control study, 119 eyes of 60 normal subjects with no findings suspicious for glaucoma (control cohort 1); 76 eyes of 41 subjects referred by general ophthalmologists as glaucoma suspects based on optic disc morphology, but found by glaucoma experts to be normal but with physiological variations in their optic nerves (control cohort 2); and 65 eyes of 46 early-glaucoma patients (cases) underwent imaging of the optic nerve head (ONH), retinal nerve fiber layer ...
