PURPOSE To assess the reliability of microaneurysm turnover, computed from color fundus photographs, in evaluating diabetic retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes and nonproliferative retinopathy. METHODS A new method (MA-Tracker) was developed to count microaneurysms by mapping their locations through image co-registration. To compute the(More)
AIM To assess circumpapillary retinal vessel density (RVD) profiles and correlate them with retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness measured by Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT). METHODS RNFL thickness of 106 healthy volunteers was measured using Cirrus FD-OCT. A proprietary software was developed in MATLAB to assess the thickness(More)
BACKGROUND To assess whether intersubject variability of circumpapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness in healthy subjects acquired with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) can be reduced by considering the disc-fovea angle (DFA), either alone or together with a compensation based on retinal blood vessel distribution (RVD).

This work intends to assess circumpapillary retinal vessel density (RVD) at a 3.46 mm diameter circle and correlate it with circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measured with Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography. Furthermore, it aims to evaluate the reduction of intersubject variability of RNFL when considering RVD as a source(More)
AIMS To investigate the correlation between increased retinal thickness (RT) measured with spectral domain high-definition optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Cirrus HD-OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, California, USA)) and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in eyes with clinically significant macular oedema (CSME) and type 2 diabetes. METHODS Seventy(More)
PURPOSE To compare Cirrus HD - optical coherence tomography (HD-OCT) with confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (HRT 3) for analysis of optic disc parameters in healthy eyes. METHODS In 126 subjects, cup volume (CV), vertical cup/disc ratio (CDR), neuroretinal rim area (NRA), cup area (CA) and optic disc area (ODA) were measured with the Cirrus HD-OCT(More)
PURPOSE Aim of the present study was to evaluate whether there is a correlation between retinal blood vessel density (RVD) and the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness profile. METHODS RNFL thickness of 106 healthy subjects was measured using scanning laser polarimetry, GDx variable corneal compensation (VCC), and GDx enhanced corneal(More)
PURPOSE We present and validate a multivariate model that partially compensates for retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) intersubject variability. METHODS A total of 202 healthy volunteers randomly attributed to a training (TS) and a validation (VS) sample underwent complete ophthalmic examination, including Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography(More)
