Example of a healthy eye imaged using SS-OCT in the ETDRS area. Retina (A-1), GCC/GCIPL (C-1/B-1), and choroid (D-1) were automatically segmented, and thickness measurements were subsequently calculated through available built-in software (A-2,B-2,C-2,D-2). GCC/GCIPL showed similar topographic distributions with the retina (A-3,B-3,C-3), while in the same region of the macula, the choroid exhibited completely different patterns of topographic variation (D-3). ETDRS = the Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study. Delineation of the nine macular sectors: center = within 1000 um of the central fovea; inner ring = 1500–3000 um from the central fovea; outer ring = 3000–6000 um from the central fovea; The inner and outer rings were segmented into four quadrants (inner/outer superior, inner/outer inferior, inner/outer nasal, and inner/outer temporal)
