vtkLSMReader code submission
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
We have make a vtk file reader calss for confocal microscopy files from carl ziess confocal laser scanning microscopes. these file conmtain volume image data, in a tiff like format with a header containing lots of data description info. The .lsm files can be single images, a 3D stack of images, a 4D time series set of 3D images. the data can have several "colour" channels in each volume/time point. The vtkLSMReader we made does a pretty good job in handling all these things and allowing the hreader data to be acessible in VTK for correct volume rendering, and knowing what colour each channel is etc. We would like ot submit this code for inclusion in VTK5. The code has been tested to a beta stage, and we are contunially fixing small bugs. the reader is pretty useable.
