Retinal Vascular Tracing Project

Retinal Vascular Tracing Project


The objective of this project is to accelerate an existing real-time algorithm for tracing
of the vasculature and analysis of intersections and crossovers in live high-resolution
retinal fundus image sequences, by using reconfigurable hardware.
