Abstract

Purpose:: OCT/SLO is a new retina layers imaging system that uses , differently from OCT3, both longitudinal and coronal scans (B-C-Scans).The aim of our study was to evaluate the differences between OCT3 and OCT/SLO in macular cellophane diagnosis.

Methods:: 50 consecutive out-patients (50 eyes) with altered fundus reflex (suspected macular cellophane) following biomicroscopy examination, and metamorphopsiae as symptoms, underwent OCT3 and OCT/SLO to confirm the diagnosis.The examinations were carried out, using the two different techniques, on the same day by two masked operators.

Results:: OCT3 confirmed the cellophane diagnosis in 30 eyes (60%). OCT/SLO performed in B-scan, confirmed the diagnosis in 32 patients (64%). In the residual 18 eyes, using OCT/SLO in C-Scan, cellophane resulted in 15 eyes. In the final 3 eyes the retina layer did not present morphological modification. To summarize, OCT/SLO permits a correct diagnosis in 47 eyes (94%). OCT3 in 30 eyes (60%).

Conclusions:: OCT3 and OCT/SLO in longitudinal scans (B-Scans) give similar results. However, using OCT/SLO in C-Scan shows that it has superior diagnostic capacity compared to OCT3 due to its ability to study the interaction between the vitreous body and the retina.
