This paper describes the analysis of human retinal blood vessels in terms of their fractal dimension ( D I . 7 ) . The fractal analysis of fundus images has applications to studies on the development of the retina and to diagnostic retinal imaging. Since the value of the fractal dimension for the retinal vessels is similar to that found for a diffusion limited growth process the results supports the hypothesis that diffusion is the fundamental process in the formation of human retinal vessel patterns. The fractal classification methodology permits the rapid screening of clinical furidus images and may have diagnostic potential. 1.
