Is it possible to compute individual elements of a matrix inverse?

I have a large sparse regular matrix. Instead of computing the full inverse of it, I just want to determine individual elements of it (mainly the diagonal elements of the inverse). Is there any way to do that in Matlab?

Some light reading to get you started:
http://www-users.cs.umn.edu/~saad/PDF/Sparse_days_06_15_2010.pdf: "Computing the diagonal of the inverse of a sparse matrix"

Question: how big is the matrix?
