Over the years, tools for the analysis of retinal images have been developed by several research groups but their usage has been mainly confined within the developing institutions. One possibility to foster their adoption is to develop them as web-based tools. We present here three such systems we recently developed. They are specifically focused on the estimation of retinal vascular parameters, such as arteriolar narrowing (AVR parameter), vessel tortuosity, and vessel caliber narrowing and tortuosity in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) images. These systems have been successfully evaluated as regards their reliability and will soon be publicly available to interested health care providers.
