In this work, we present an automatic branch and stenoses de- tection method that is capable of detecting all types of plaques in Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) modality. Our method is based on the vessel extraction algorithm we pro- posed in [1], and detects branches and stenoses in a very fast way. We demonstrate the performance of our branch detection method on 3 complex tubular structured synthetic datasets for quantitative validation. Additionally, we show the preliminary results of stenoses detection algorithm on 11 CTA volumes, which are qualitatively evaluated by a cardiol- ogist expert.
