[R] How to find regions enclosed by edges within a TIF image

I am processing grayscale TIF images that represent X-rays of a sand- and gravel-filled tube.  Each image represents a plane through the porous medium, and I need to classify each pixel in the image as void or solid.  For the most part, voids are dark and solids are bright, but there are many gray regions.  In particular, there are obvious pebbles (larger sized solids) that have darker spots within them, which get erroneous classification as voids.  Can anyone suggest packages/functions that I could use to identify pebbles by their edges (roundish areas outlined by voids), so I could then classify those regions as solid?  So far I am using just the adimpro package, to read the TIF files.
