Abstract

Purpose: To compare the area of the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) in the superficial and deep retinal layers using two different spectral-domain optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) devices. Methods: A cross-sectional comparative study was conducted to obtain macular OCTA images from healthy subjects using Optovue RTVue XR Avanti (Optovue, Inc, Fremont, CA) and Spectralis HRA+OCTA (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany). Two independent trained graders measured the FAZ area using automated slab segmentation. The FAZ area in the superficial and deep retinal layers were compared. Results: Twenty-three eyes of 23 subjects were included. The graders agreement was excellent (>0.86) for all measurements. The mean FAZ area was significantly larger at the superficial retinal layer as compared to the deep retinal layer on both devices (0.31 ± 0.08 mm2 vs 0.26 ± 0.08 mm2 in Optovue and 0.55 ± 0.16 mm2 vs 0.36 ± 0.13 mm2 in Spectralis, both P < 0.001). The mean FAZ area was significantly greater in the superficial and deep retinal layers using Spectralis as compared to Optovue measurements (P < 0.001 for both comparisons). Conclusion: In contrast to previous reports, the FAZ area was larger in the superficial retina as compared to deep retinal layers using updated software versions. Measurements from different devices cannot be used interchangeably. © 2020 JOURNAL OF OPHTHALMIC AND VISION RESEARCH | PUBLISHED BY KNOWLEDGE E
