Unfortunately I dont have the Image Processing Toolbox. But you are right, the purpose is indeed to find a region in an image (represented as a matrix) that has the lowest intensity values. Perhaps I was not quite clear about it. I dont really have to calculate the average of all possible submatrices. I would probably be fine with using a simpler approach that helps me to find the region with the lowest values. I will have a look at the rolling sum approach but I dont quite see how cumsum() should help me?

Then just write your own convolution/filtering routine  it's not that

I am sorry about this, but I think I did not really make clear what my problem is.
