Imaging the Posterior Segment of the Eye using Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography in Myopic Glaucoma Eyes: Comparison with Enhanced-Depth Imaging – Accepted Manuscript

Abstract: Purpose: To compare the detection rates of identifying the posterior border of the sclera and lamina cribrosa and measurement reproducibility of scleral and laminar thicknesses using enhanced depth imaging (EDI) of Heidelberg Spectralis optical coherence tomography (OCT) and swept-source OCT.Design: Cross-sectional design.Methods: Both EDI-OCT and swept-source OCT images were obtained in 32 myopic glaucoma patients. Subfoveal choroidal, subfoveal scleral, and central laminar thicknesses were measured from obtained B-scan images. Each measurement was performed at three locations by two masked observers. The detection rates and measurement reproducibility were evaluated from selected B-scans.Results: The posterior border of the sclera was visible (Read more...)
