You're welcome.  Your experience is not universal, though, lots of questions
on this list go unanswered.

 If I'm not mistaking, to use custom VTK classes, you need a custom VTK

You mean vtkImageThresholdConnectivity?  Yes, you could use a picker to get
the data coordinates (these are the coordinates measured in mm, not the
location of the voxel).  Or, if you're lucky enough to know that the region
always include the point at the center of the image, you can use the coords
that point as a seed.
