The key of using SetRequestedRegion to tell a filter to only operate on a specified ImageRegion is to call SetRequestedRegion on the filters GetOutput(). That is, to tell the DerivativeImageFilter to only operate on a small region, you must do:

derivativeFilter->GetOutput()->SetRequestedRegion(smallRegion);
derivativeFilter->Update();

RequestedRegion.cxx

#include "itkImage.h"
#include "itkRandomImageSource.h"
#include "itkDerivativeImageFilter.h"

int main(int, char *[])
{
  typedef itk::Image<float, 2> ImageType;
  
  itk::Size<2> smallSize;
  smallSize.Fill(10);
  
  itk::Index<2> index;
  index.Fill(0);
  
  itk::ImageRegion<2> region(index, smallSize);
   
  itk::Size<2> bigSize;
  bigSize.Fill(10000);
  
  itk::RandomImageSource<ImageType>::Pointer randomImageSource = itk::RandomImageSource<ImageType>::New();
  randomImageSource->SetNumberOfThreads(1); // to produce non-random results
  randomImageSource->SetSize(bigSize);
  randomImageSource->GetOutput()->SetRequestedRegion(smallSize);
  randomImageSource->Update();
  
  std::cout << "Created random image." << std::endl;
  
  typedef itk::DerivativeImageFilter<ImageType, ImageType >  DerivativeImageFilterType;
  DerivativeImageFilterType::Pointer derivativeFilter = DerivativeImageFilterType::New();
  derivativeFilter->SetInput( randomImageSource->GetOutput() );
  derivativeFilter->SetDirection(0); // "x" axis
  derivativeFilter->GetOutput()->SetRequestedRegion(smallSize);
  derivativeFilter->Update();
  
  std::cout << "Computed derivative." << std::endl;
  
  return EXIT_SUCCESS;
}

Download and Build RequestedRegion

Click here to download RequestedRegion and its CMakeLists.txt file. Once the tarball RequestedRegion.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd RequestedRegion/build
  • If ITK is installed:
cmake ..
  • If ITK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your ITK build:
cmake -DITK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/itk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./RequestedRegion

WINDOWS USERS PLEASE NOTE: Be sure to add the ITK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the ITK dll's at run time.

Building All of the Examples

Many of the examples in the ITK Wiki Examples Collection require VTK. You can build all of the the examples by following these instructions. If you are a new VTK user, you may want to try the Superbuild which will build a proper ITK and VTK.

ItkVtkGlue

ITK >= 4

For examples that use QuickView (which depends on VTK), you must have built ITK with Module_ITKVtkGlue=ON.

ITK < 4

Some of the ITK Examples require VTK to display the images. If you download the entire ITK Wiki Examples Collection, the ItkVtkGlue directory will be included and configured. If you wish to just build a few examples, then you will need to download ItkVtkGlue and build it. When you run cmake it will ask you to specify the location of the ItkVtkGlue binary directory.
