Is it possible to render only a section of the camera shot in LW?

Let's say your shot is all set in layout, but you only need to see a certain little section of shot to see if it is turning out correctly. Can you make some kind of bounding box around just that area in the camera view and just render that little part?

That make sense? This is what I mean:
look at pic number 05 on page 2:

see how just that section of her fishy face is rendered?

Much thanks for any help,
Jeff

Look in your manual under "limited region" (assuming you happen to have one)

Thanks much!
I do have one and I did "rtfm" as they say, but couldn't remember what to reference it by. Anyway, much appreciation to you. This will save me a bunch of time this weekend.
