We present a technique to obtain quantitative parameters describing the geometry of the cutaneous vessel tree. Data is obtained from MR microscopy of the human skin in vivo by transforming the segmented vessel data into a graph. The technique might help in diagnosis of vascular inflammation or malformation and can be used for treatment monitoring due to its non-invasiveness.
