In this paper we present a generalization of Frangi's vesselness measure \cite{Frangi1998} for the enhacement of M-dimensional shapes in N-dimensional images, together with the implementation of the corresponding Insight Toolkit (ITK) filter \cite{ITKSoftwareGuide}. Inspired by the implementation of a multiscale vesselness measure recently presented on the Insight Journal \cite{Enquobahrie2007}, we also propose a unified framework for the evaluation of generic multiscale Hessian-based measures. The manuscript is accompanied by source code and examples.
