Abstract

■ BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To compare macular thickness measurements and segmentation error rates between Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., Dublin, CA), and Fourier-domain OCT (RTVue, Optovue, Inc., Fremont, CA). ■ PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study was performed of 93 normal and pathologic eyes from 79 subjects imaged with both OCT instruments on the same day. Both the macular thickness measurement for each Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) zone and the incidence of segmentation error in the central macula between the two instruments were compared. ■ RESULTS: Macular thickness measurements for all nine ETDRS zones were higher with RTVue compared with Stratus OCT (P < .01). Linear regression analysis showed the highest correlation in the central macula (R 2 = 0.88), with progressively lower correlation peripherally. The overall segmentation error rate was 29% with Stratus OCT versus 32% with RTVue (P > .05). ■ CONCLUSION: Macular thickness measurement was greater with RTVue than with Stratus OCT in all ETDRS areas, with the best correlation seen in the central macula. No difference in segmentation error rate was noted between the two instruments.
