Hi Fabien,

ITK has a number of region-growing segmentation algorithms.

Please look at the ITK Software Guide


in the Segmentation Chapter, where several of these methods
are discussed in detail.

Probably the best method to start with is ConfidenceConnected.

Note that the FastMarching LevelSet method also qualifies
as a Region-Growing algorithm and doesn't requires heavy
computation. You will find these method described in the
Software Guide too.

You will fin examples on these methods in


and GUI demo applications for them in
