This plugin implements the algorithm for detection of vessel- or tube-like structures in 2D and 3D images described Frangi et al 1998. [1]

In my experience, this method produces consistently better results than the Tubeness plugin for isotropic image data, although it is significantly slower.

These screenshots show the results on an example file:
