// The use of the ScalarChanAndVeseSparseLevelSetImageFilter is
// illustrated in the following example. The implementation of this filter in
// ITK is based on the paper by Chan And Vese.  This
// implementation extends the functionality of the
// level-set filters in ITK by using region-based variational techniques. These methods
// do not rely on the presence of edges in the images.
// ScalarChanAndVeseSparseLevelSetImageFilter expects two inputs.  The first is
// an initial level set in the form of an \doxygen{Image}. The second input
// is a feature image. For this algorithm, the feature image is the original
// raw or preprocessed image. Several parameters are required by the algorithm
// for regularization and weights of different energy terms. The user is encouraged to
// change different parameter settings to optimize the code example on their images.
// Let's start by including the headers of the main filters involved in the
// preprocessing.
