    3. Hybrid Deep Learning on Single Wide-field Optical Coherence Tomography Scans Accurately Classifies Glaucoma Suspects

      Hybrid Deep Learning on Single Wide-field Optical Coherence Tomography Scans Accurately Classifies Glaucoma Suspects

      Peripapillary perfused capillary density in primary open-angle glaucoma across disease stage: an optical coherence tomography angiography study
      Aims To assess peripapillary perfused capillary density (PCD) in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) across stage of disease. Methods In this observational, cross-sectional study, 60 eyes with varying stages of POAG and 24 control eyes were imaged on a spectral domain optical coherence tomography angiography system (AngioVue, Optovue, Fremont, California, USA) generating images centred on the optic nerve head. Major blood vessels were removed using custom automated software. PCD was calculated ...
