Detection of Glaucoma with an Optical Coherence Tomography-derived Neuroretinal Rim Parameter

I have read with great interest the article entitled “Enhanced detection of open-angle glaucoma with an anatomically accurate optical coherence tomography-derived neuroretinal rim parameter” by Chauhan et al, and I congratulate the authors for their informative paper. The study reported that the Bruch's membrane opening-minimum rim width (BMO-MRW)—an optical coherence tomography (OCT)-derived neuroretinal rim parameter—had better diagnostic performance for glaucoma than the current OCT-based optic nerve head (ONH) and retinal nerve fiber layer parameters. They suggested that the termination of Bruch's membrane (BM) or BMO is a logical anatomic outer border (Read more...)
