We investigate the scattering phenomena produced by a general finite range non-separable potential in a multi-channel two-probe cylindrical nanowire heterostructure. The multi-channel current scattering matrix is efficiently computed using the R-matrix formalism extended for cylindrical coordinates. Considering the contribution of the evanescent channels to the scattering matrix, we were able to put in evidence the specific dips in the tunneling probability in the case of an attractive scattering potential. The cylindrical symmetry cancels the "selection rules" known for Cartesian coordinates. Detailed maps of the localization probability density sustain the physical interpretation of the resonances. We present numerical results for a quantum dot embedded into the nano-cylinder and a double barrier along the nano-cylinder.
