I'm looking for a shape differentium to use for epithelial tubes. Tubular is currently a synonym of cylindrical (PATO:0001873), defined as: "A convex 3-D shape quality inhering in a bearer by virtue of the bearer's exhibiting a consistently-sized round cross section." But this would apply to a solid cylinder of tissue, I'm looking for a term for something that is cylindrical and hollow.

    Best,
