Abstract

Over the last few years, several studies have been performed to assess the diagnostic performance of SDOCT structural imaging and its validity in assessing glaucoma progression. Most evidence suggests that SDOCT performs similarly to TDOCT for glaucoma diagnosis; however, SDOCT may be superior for the detection of early stage disease. With respect to progression detection, SDOCT represents an important technological advance because of its improved resolution and repeatability. Advancements in RNFL thickness quantification, segmental macular thickness calculation and progression detection algorithms, when used correctly, may help to improve our ability to diagnose and manage glaucoma.
