Information provided by:
The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Retinology and Biomicroscopic Laser Surgery
  Purpose
The Cirrus OCT provides due to the spectral domain technology a 2-fold resolution than Stratus OCT generated in a comparable amount of time. Due to this higher resolution the retinal surface and the retinal pigment epithelium can be identified more clearly, a significantly reduced number of algorithm failures is expected

Condition
Age-Related Macular Degeneration Choroidal Neovascularization

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Reliability of Threshold Algorithm in Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Stratus Versus Cirrus OCT
