Analyzation of the Nerve Fiber Layer using the GDx® System Requires Highly Experienced Observers
Welsandt G., Jonescu-Cuypers J., Kazakova D., Krieglstein G. K., Mietz H.
Purpose: Analyzation of the nerve fiber layer is an increasingly frequently performed clinical examination. In an effort to make the handling of the GDx® system easier for the person performing the examination, the software supplied by the manufacturer includes specific arithmetic algorithms that are designed to reflect the accuracy of the measurement. It would be desirable to have an easy-to-use system, so that even technical assistants can perform the examination with little experience and high accuracy. For a first test, we have chosen two groups of well-trained ophthalmologists performing routine measurements using the GDx® system.
