PURPOSE To investigate the relationship of parapapillary atrophy measured by confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy to visual field sensitivity measured with standard automated perimetry and short-wavelength automated perimetry in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma. METHODS Forty-seven eyes of 47 primary open-angle glaucoma patients with increased(More)
PURPOSE To quantify and compare, on a point-by-point basis, the long-term variability of standard and short-wavelength automated perimetry in a group of stable glaucoma patients. METHODS From a group of 53 glaucoma patients experienced in visual field testing, we identified one eye, randomly chosen, from each of 25 glaucoma patients whose condition was(More)
PURPOSE To study the patterns of structural damage of the optic disk in patients with early focal visual field loss using a confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope. METHODS Thirty-nine subjects with repeatable early focal visual field loss were included. The Heidelberg Retina Tomograph (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) was used to obtain(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate whether parapapillary atrophy can be measured interactively using confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy. METHODS For 36 patients with open-angle glaucoma or suspected of having glaucoma, confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy of the optic nerve head was performed using the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph (HRT; Heidelberg Engineering,(More)
PURPOSE To examine parapapillary atrophy in normal subjects and patients with primary open-angle glaucoma with focal visual field loss. METHODS Twenty-nine patients with repeatable early focal visual field loss according to standard automated perimetry (Humphrey program 24-2) and 29 matched (age and disk area) normal subjects were included. Parapapillary(More)
PURPOSE To assess the validity of ranked threshold distribution (RTD) analysis for longitudinal evaluation of short-wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP). METHODS Eighty-five patients with glaucoma and with three or more SWAP results were examined. An additional 20 patients with glaucoma and 3 stable standard automated visual fields and 3 stable SWAP(More)
The quencher mechanisms in Chemically-Amplified (CA) resists have been investigated. To explain the acid distribution with a variety of acid strengths in the presence of quencher, a new full Acid-Equilibrium-Quencher model (AEQ model) is proposed and examined in solid-model-CA-resist systems. To observe the reactions in the CA resists, real-time(More)
We aimed to examine cerebral oscillatory differences associated with psychological processes during simulated car driving. We recorded neuromagnetic signals in 14 healthy volunteers using magnetoencephalography (MEG) during simulated driving. MEG data were analyzed using synthetic aperture magnetometry to detect the spatial distribution of cerebral(More)
