Circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness is a common OCT parameter used in the diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma. Most OCT instruments use one circular scan of ~3.4 mm. Could ONH circle scans of varying diameters deliver more diagnostic accuracy of circumpapillary RNFL thickness measurements?
A recent study investigated the diagnostic capabilities of the SPECTRALIS® SD-OCT Glaucoma Module Premium Edition (GMPE), that provides circumpapillary OCT scans with diameters of 3.5, 4.1, and 4.7 mm.
