dc.description.abstractBACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To quantify vessel tortuosity among infants with retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective study including 61 RetCam images from 33 infants. The laser treatment (LT) group included 17 infants who underwent laser for ROP. The no-treatment (NT) group included 16 infants. The modified ROPtool was used to calculate mean vessel tortuosity (MVT) and highest vessel tortuosity (HVT) for the participants and for the standard plus disease photograph from the Early Treatment for Retinopathy of Prematurity (ETROP) study. RESULTS: The median MVT was 1.226 versus 1.056 for the LT and NT groups, respectively (P < .001). The median HVT was 1.346 versus 1.088 (P < .001). An MVT of 1.124 was 96.7% sensitive and 100% specific for identifying infants with treatment-requiring ROP. Both MVT and HVT cutoff values correctly captured plus disease in the standard ETROP trial photograph. CONCLUSION: The modified ROPtool can be used to identify infants who have treatment-requiring ROP with a high level of sensitivity and specificity. © 2019 Slack Incorporated. All rights reserved.
