Recently, an implementation of the Vessel Enhancing Diffusion (VED) algorithm  using the Insight Toolkit (ITK) framework  has been proposed by Enquobahrie et al.. In this paper we present an alternative implementation, for two reasons. First, in this implementation all the main functionality of the algorithm, including eigensystem, vesselness, tensor calculation and PDE discretization using a forward Euler scheme are now grouped together in one single class. Although this may come at the cost of code-reusability, it improves readibility and enables application specific code optimization. The second reason is the criterion of reproducibility. Source code, test environment and example data of the paper  are provided.
