This sounds like a 3-D extension of a problem we discussed in our
graduate DIP class. One of our homework problems involved discussing an
algorithm to do a 2-D analogy of what you are asking. Our professor,
Dr. Rhody, has a rather extensive website which includes most of our
class notes on the subject. His library of routines also has a program
called HR_LABEL_REGION which is an improved version of IDL's
LABEL_REGION routine which only works on binary images.
You can check out the website at: http://www.cis.rit.edu/class/simg782/
The textbook that we use in the class is Digital Image Processing, by
Gonzalez and Wood, ISBN 0-201-50803-6. I don't know how useful it is
for your problem because we have been relying mostly on the professor's
class notes and only use the text as a reference from time to time.
Please let me know if you think I might be able to help you further.
