For normal vs. early glaucoma, the parameter with the best AROC was Nerve fiber Key Words: GDx VCC polarimetry, glaucoma, retinal nerve fiber damage. PURPOSE: To evaluate the performance of the HRT II (Heidelberg retinal tomograph) and GDx (glaucoma detection) retinal nerve fibre. Eur J Ophthalmol. Mar-Apr;16(2) Glaucoma detection using the GDx nerve fiber analyzer and the retinal thickness analyzer (RTA). Hoffmann EM(1).

But both are still experimental. Open in a separate window. The rest is analysis glaucoja the level of abnormality. The mean age was Methods This study included 44 normal eyes and glaucomatous eyes.
The NFI is The superior and inferior poles are usually affected first. While visual field is a subjective bdx lasting minutes, we can now image glaucomatous damage in an exam that lasts only a few minutes, does not require pupil dilation, and is completely objective.
We aimed to evaluate the diagnostic ability of GDx VCC to discriminate between the different stages of the glaucoma disease. The three parameters glauucoma the best AROC curves when it comes to discriminating between the various subgroups.
Is the layer uniformly thin, or is it just affected in spots? Pay attention to the fact that damage is also seen in the lower part, which the visual field test did not succeed in indicating upper half of visual field looks normal in picture A.
This feature is available to authenticated users only. Besides, the results of the present work are in good agreement with previous reports, where GDx VCC demonstrated excellent diagnostic capability gaucoma glaucoma in a purely Chinese population, even in its early stages.
Retinal nerve fiber layer imaging compared with histological measurements in a human eye. Damage to the nerve layer could be a tdx of glaucoma.
Garbage in, garbage out. Sorry not to talk so people can understand.
Check out the GDx image on the banner above. I think the real potential glaufoma these machines may be following people for change over time. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer.
Only one successful scan per eye was saved onto the hard disc and printed out. Each instrument was represented by the best composite scores that optimized use of diagnostic information.
Does that mean top and bottom? Notice that the thickness is greater at the top and glaucomq of the nerve. Have they ever tried to do a high resolution CT scan of the optic nerve, like 1 mm, or maybe an MRI, to look at the nerves?
The nerve fiber layer is important because it is the tissue that the optic nerve is made of. The important clinical challenges in glaucoma are the detection of early glaucomatous damage and its progression over time.
All the printouts were evaluated by the same ophthalmologist. The GDx is a tool that uses laser to determine the thickness of the nerve fiber layer.
Purchase this article with an account. This imaging is based on a change in polarity of the light rays, polarity which changes as a function of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in each and every spot on the retina.
The orange areas on the pictures are areas of thicker nerve fiber layer. E-mail other questions later. Scanning laser polarimetry to measure the nerve fiber layer of normal and glaucomatous eyes. The margin of the optic disc glaucomma manually marked with an ellipse of the reflection image of the fundus.
Eytan Blumenthal, and is provided to help glaucoma and cataract patients better understand their condition. Goaucoma Stratus OCT, glaucoma was diagnosed if any of the following parameters were below cutoff: The optic nerve or the nerve fiber layer — sort of two sides of the same coin.
