VAMPIRE (Vascular Assessment and Measurement Platform for Images of the REtina) is a software application for efficient, semi-automatic quantification of retinal vessel properties with large collections of fundus camera images. VAMPIRE is also an international collaborative project of several image processing groups and clinical centres in Europe, Asia and the UK. The system aims to provide efficient and reliable detection of retinal landmarks (optic disc, retinal zones, main vasculature), and quantify key parameters used frequently in investigative studies, currently vessel width, vessel branching coefficients, and tortuosity.

The ultimate vision is to enable efficient quantitative analysis of large collections of retinal images acquired from multiple instruments.
