PURPOSE To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFLT), ganglion cell complex (GCC), and optic disc measurements made with the RTVue-100 Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) to detect glaucoma in a Caucasian referral population. METHODS One randomly selected eye of 286 Caucasian patients (93 healthy, 36(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the reproducibility of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) and ganglion cell complex (GCC) measurements made with the RTVue-100 Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) device (Optovue, Inc., Fremont, CA) and to determine the influence of 4 factors: pupil dilation, subject age, experience in imaging(More)
PURPOSE To compare repeatability of measurements of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) made using the RTVue-100 Fourier-domain optical coherence tomograph against repeatability of those made using scanning laser polarimetry with variable corneal compensation or enhanced corneal compensation (GDx-VCC and GDx-ECC, respectively).

PURPOSE To investigate the ability of different parameters of the RTVue-100 Fourier-domain optical coherence tomograph (RTVue-OCT) to detect early glaucomatous progression. METHODS One eye of 17 healthy and 51 perimetric glaucoma patients was imaged prospectively at 6-month intervals for 1.5 to 3 years. Progression was determined by Octopus normal G2(More)
PURPOSE To compare sensitivity and specificity of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) measurements made using RTVue-100 Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (RTVue-OCT) and scanning laser polarimetry with variable (GDx-VCC) or enhanced compensation (GDx-ECC). METHODS One eye of each of 177 consecutive patients was imaged. Healthy (n=50) and(More)
PURPOSE To determine structure-function relationship between each of 16 Octopus perimeter G2 program clusters and the corresponding 16 peripapillary sector retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) values measured with the RTVue-100 Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (RTVue OCT) and scanning laser polarimetry with variable corneal compensation(More)
We investigate the use of fractal analysis (FA) as the basis of a system for multiclass prediction of the progression of glaucoma. FA is applied to pseudo 2-D images converted from 1-D retinal nerve fiber layer data obtained from the eyes of normal subjects, and from subjects with progressive and nonprogressive glaucoma. FA features are obtained using a(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the influence of pupil dilation on repeatability of scanning laser polarimetry with variable (GDx-VCC) and enhanced (GDx-ECC) corneal compensation, in different stages of glaucoma. METHODS One eye of each of 37 Caucasian participants [14 healthy and ocular hypertensive subjects with mean deviation (MD) <2 dB, 11 glaucoma patients with(More)
PURPOSE To compare retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) and inner macula thickness changes measured with Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) and scanning laser polarimetry during the course of acute optic neuritis (ON). METHODS Nine eyes of 7 consecutive patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) were prospectively imaged from the onset(More)
Purpose. To compare long-term variability of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) measurements made with the RTVue-100 Fourier-domain optical coherence tomograph (RTVue-OCT) and scanning laser polarimetry with variable (GDx-VCC) and enhanced (GDx-ECC) corneal compensation. Methods. One eye each of 110 Caucasian patients (17 healthy, 20 ocular(More)
