I believe some of the newer parts of ndimage depend on other parts of 
scipy.  However, if you are only interested in replicating functionality 
of ndimage that existed in the numarray era you can grab a standalone 
version from here:


This version of ndimage is distributed as part of stsci_python.  We try 
to keep it up-to-date with the scipy version sans the parts that depend 
on other scipy components.
