This new filter enables enhancement of structures such as balls (dots, bubbles, spherical cells), rods (filaments, fibers), and planes (membranes, cracks), relying on either the eigenvalue analysis of the Hessian or the Structure Tensor.

The filter can operate at a range of scales and is thus able to highlight structures of different sizes.
