Comparison of Dissociated Phoria Measuring Methods. Repeatability and Reliability
Poster Apr 24, 2013
Ane Murueta-Goyena Larrañaga
Many methods of heterophoria measurement are clinically available. Several studies have been carried out to compare their results. Due to the difference of the methods in the ability to control accommodation, the induced proximal convergence, the technique used for dissociation, and the method of data analysis1, the results can vary on the same patient.
The aim of this study is to determine the reliability and compare reproducibility of different dissociated phoria measure tests: Modified Thorington, Von Graefe, and “fast” and “slow” Cover Test. For that purpose, I designed a specific protocol, in order to control and equate test conditions.
These results support the use of hSC-CM and MEA technology for preclinical assessment of proarrhythmic risk within the proposed CiPA paradigm, and, more generally, demonstrate that automation of the CM-MEA assay can achieve high reliability and throughput for cardiac risk assessment in vitro.READ MORE
