Is there some type of block processing in IM so I can handle very large images? See link for details

I'm trying to Canny process a 400 DPI image 16800 x 12000 pixel, 1bpp, Group IV compressed image and it takes a long time. Actually I'm not sure it will complete because I'm too impatient. I've waited 5 minutes and killed it because it just was taking too long. So I was wondering if there was a way I could process a block at a time, show the results, then move to the next block.

Here's link to the file

I used image.GetReadOnlyPixels to 'Clone' parts of the image but I am unable to reproduce the code from the posted example. I think you will have to do some trials for yourself to see if you can get it working.
