OpenSlide is a C library that provides a simple interface to read whole-slide images also known as virtual slides. Whole-slide images, also known as virtual slides, are large, high resolution images used in digital pathology. Reading these images using standard image tools or libraries is a challenge because these tools are typically designed for images that can comfortably be uncompressed into RAM or a swap file. Whole-slide images routinely exceed RAM sizes, often occupying tens of gigabytes when uncompressed. Additionally, whole-slide images are typically multi-resolution, and only a small amount of image data might be needed at a particular resolution. This library currently supports: -Trestle (.tif) -Hamamatsu (.vms, .vmu) -Aperio (.svs, .tif) -MIRAX (.mrxs) -Generic tiled TIFF (.tif) This package contains command line tools for file manipulation.
