Tubular organs (blood vessels and bronchial tubes), because of their anti-compact nature, generally appear randomly cross-sectioned in CT slices. Because of this, it's difficult to analyze this kind of organ. We show how to use a previously presented work of ours to segment, and therefore be able to measure, tubular organs extracting local axis oriented slices. Finally, we show some examples of both types of organs and the parameters' values involved.
