    2. Reproducibility of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Macular and Optic Nerve Head Vascular Density in Glaucoma and Healthy Eyes

      Reproducibility of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Macular and Optic Nerve Head Vascular Density in Glaucoma and Healthy Eyes
      Purpose: Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) is a non-invasive technology that allows visualization of retinal blood vessels. It is important to determine reproducibility of measurements as low precision can impair its diagnostic capabilities. The purpose of this study is to determine intra-visit and inter-visit reproducibility of optic nerve head (ONH) and macular vessel density measurements with OCT-A. Patients and Methods: Fifteen healthy volunteers and fourteen glaucoma patients completed two OCT-A ...
