Abstract [en]

Purpose To develop a semi-automatic algorithm for estimation of pigment epithelium central limit-inner limit of the retina minimal distance averaged over 2 pi radians (PIMD-2 pi) and to estimate the precision of the algorithm. Further, the variances in estimates of PIMD-2 pi were to be estimated in a pilot sample of glaucomatous eyes. Methods Three-dimensional cubes of the optic nerve head (ONH) were captured with a commercial SD-OCT device. Raw cube data were exported for semi-automatic segmentation. The inner limit of the retina was automatically detected. Custom software aided the delineation of the ONH pigment epithelium central limit resolved in 500 evenly distributed radii. Sources of variation in PIMD estimates were analysed with an analysis of variance. Results The estimated variance for segmentations and angles was 130 mu m(2) and 1280 mu m(2), respectively. Considering averaging eight segmentations, a 95 % confidence interval for mean PIMD-2 pi was estimated to 212 +/- 10 mu m (df = 7). The coefficient of variation for segmentation was estimated at 0.05. In the glaucomatous eyes, the within-subject variance for captured volumes and for segmentations within volumes was 10 mu m(2) and 50 mu m(2), respectively. Conclusion The developed semi-automatic algorithm enables estimation of PIMD-2 pi in glaucomatous eyes with relevant precision using few segmentations of each captured volume.

Abstract [en]

Glaucoma is a chronic optic nerve head (ONH) disease. Gradual retinal ganglion cell and nerve fiber loss lead to morphological ONH change and visual field defects. Initial loss is often focal. Rate of progression and life expectancy guide treatment. Currently, confocal scanning laser tomoghraphy (HRT) and optic coherence tomography (OCT) are available for ONH imaging. However, there is no consensus for which morphometric measurement of ONH nerve fiber content to use for glaucoma follow-up.

Purpose: To measure ONH nerve fiber content as neuroretinal rim area (NRA) with HRT, estimate NRA measurement variation and its impact on designing a follow-up strategy. To develop a custom algorithm, Pigment epithelium central limit-Inner limit of the retina Minimal Distance (PIMD), for measuring ONH nerve fiber content in OCT data cubes. To measure PIMD in glaucomatous eyes, estimate the variance sources for PIMD and their impact on designing strategies for glaucoma follow-up.

Methods: NRA was measured with HRT in non-glaucomatous and glaucomatous eyes. Sources of variance for NRA were estimated. An OCT data cube of a non-glaucomatous eye was used in developing the PIMD algorithm. PIMD was measured in 500 radii along the ONH circumference. PIMD averaged over the circumference is PIMD-2π. Sources of variance for PIMD-2π were estimated for glaucomatous eyes. Strategies for following PIMD-2π and segments of PIMD-2π within subject over time were proposed.

Results: Variation among subjects was substantial for NRA and PIMD-2π. Contrarily, within subject variation was small for NRA and PIMD-2π. When within subject variation, a previously reported loss rate for progressing glaucoma, and measuring NRA 3 times every 4 months were applied, a significant loss was detected after 54 months. When within subject variation and a PIMD-2π loss rate resulting in blindness after 20 years were applied, a significant PIMD-2π loss was detected in 16 months with visits every 4 months. Within subject segmental PIMD-2π loss can be detected from the 3rd visit. Loss rate of each PIMD can be estimated with linear regression from the 4th visit. Change in segmental PIMD-2π loss rate can be detected at a later visit.

Conclusions: Small within subject variation allows for within subject NRA and PIMD follow-up over time. Segmental PIMD-2π has potential to detect focal glaucomatous defects and worsening of existing defects. There is potential to detect a change in segmental PIMD-2π loss rate. Segmental PIMD-2π has potential as a tool for within subject follow-up of glaucoma.
