Would Open CV help me find an object in 3D image

My problem isn't computer vision, but I think the techniques used in CV would be applicable. I have an anatomical MRI image - a 3D grey scale array. I would like to locate a particular shape within the image. I think CV techniques would be useful, since I need to deal with translations, rotations, and deformities (everyone's different!).

Is this possible? What part of the library should I be poking around in?

I'm not sure if opencv is the right library for 3D image and/or point cloud processing. Take a look at the point cloud library It can process a lot of different kinds of point clouds which includes also clouds of points with an intensity value (or RGB values) as required in your case.
