Attached is a z-projection of 200 slices of a volume which I have been trying to extract the cracks from. This is carbon composite material and using z-projection allows me to enhance very fine cracks and then attempt to segment them. Unfortunately, I’ve not yet found a solution.

Attached is an image with the cracks highlighted that I would like to extract. The idea is to create an automated process as there are multitudes of volumes that I need to look at.
I have tried ridge detection, but the noise remains an issue. Also tried local thickness plugin, but not managing to remove the noise significantly. Hit a dead end, and therefore asking for help
Please feel free to crop the image if necessary (to something like below) -
Thank you in advance.
