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:
- Aperio (.svs, .tif)
- Hamamatsu (.vms, .vmu, .ndpi)
- Leica (.scn)
- MIRAX (.mrxs)
- Sakura (.svslide)
- Trestle (.tif)
- Generic tiled TIFF (.tif)
This package contains command line tools for file manipulation.
