2005-17: European Optic disc Assessment Trial
The aim of this study is to assess the diagnostic accuracy of judging optic disc photographs for glaucoma by ophthalmologists among 875 invited ophthalmologists in 11 European countries. The investigators will determine how well each participant classified 40 healthy eyes and 48 glaucomatous eyes with varying severity of the disease on stereoscopic slides. Duplicate slides were provided for determining intraobserver agreement. All eyes were also imaged with the GDx with variable corneal compensation (GDx-VCC) (Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Jena, Germany) and the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph (HRT) I (Heidelberg Engineering GmbH, Heidelberg, Germany). Diagnostic accuracies of clinicians were compared with those of the best machine classifiers.
