Objective To determine and compare the diagnostic precision in glaucoma of two deep learning models using infrared images of the optic nerve, eye fundus, and the ganglion cell layer (GCL). Methods We have selected a sample of normal and glaucoma patients. Three infrared images were registered with a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). The first corresponds to the confocal scan image of the fundus, the second is a cut-out of the first centered on the optic nerve, and the third was the SD-OCT image of the GCL. Our deep learning models are developed on the MatLab platform with the ResNet50 and VGG19 pre-trained neural networks. Results 498 eyes of 298 patients were collected. Of the 498 eyes, 312 are glaucoma and 186 are normal. In the test, the precision of the models was 96% (ResNet50) and 96% (VGG19) for the GCL images, 90% (ResNet50) and 90% (VGG19) for the optic nerve images and 82% (ResNet50) and 84% (VGG19) for the fundus images. The ROC area in the test was 0.96 (ResNet50) and 0.97 (VGG19) for the GCL images, 0.87 (ResNet50) and 0.88 (VGG19) for the optic nerve images, and 0.79 (ResNet50) and 0.81 (VGG19) for the fundus images. Conclusions Both deep learning models, applied to the GCL images, achieve high diagnostic precision, sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of glaucoma.
