To investigate the variability of interpretation of optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of multiple vitreoretinal pathologies among a large group of retina specialists.
Twenty–eight retina specialists independently analyzed OCT images of ten patients with macular pathology. For each patient, two scans and a brief one sentence clinical history was provided. No diagnoses were provided.
Considering all cases, the mean overall agreement of diagnosis was 86.7% (range, 71.43% to 96.43%). Confidence intervals and p–values were calculated for each case, and all agreement levels were statistically significant.
The interpretation of OCT images of numerous distinct macular pathologies was consistent among members of a large group of retina specialists.
