Description

slidetool uses OpenSlide to retrieve data from whole slide images, also known as virtual slide files.

slidetool assoc icc read

Write the associated image's ICC color profile to output-file if specified, and otherwise to standard output. If no ICC color profile is available, fail.

slidetool assoc list

List associated images for one or more slides. Associated images are small non-pyramidal images containing additional information about the slide, such as its label.

slidetool assoc read

Write the associated image with the specified name to a PNG image. If output-file is not specified, the image will be written to standard output.

slidetool prop get

Print a single OpenSlide property value for one or more slides. Properties are individual pieces of textual metadata about the slide. Properties prefixed with openslide. are defined by OpenSlide; others are defined by the individual slide format.

slidetool prop list

Print all OpenSlide properties for one or more slides.

slidetool region icc read

Write the slide's ICC color profile to output-file if specified, and otherwise to standard output. If no ICC color profile is available, fail.

slidetool region read

Write a region of the specified level of a slide to a PNG image. x and y are pixel coordinates in level 0, the highest-resolution slide level. width and height are pixel dimensions in the specified level. If output-file is not specified, the image will be written to standard output.

The dimensions of each level of a slide can be obtained with slidetool prop list.

slidetool slide open

Check whether OpenSlide can open one or more slide files.

slidetool slide quickhash1

Print OpenSlide quickhash-1 checksums for one or more slides, in a format similar to sha256sum(1).

quickhash-1 is a non-cryptographic, 256-bit hash of a subset of a slide's data. It uniquely identifies a particular slide, but cannot be used to detect corruption or modification of the slide file.

quickhash-1 is not defined for all slide files supported by OpenSlide. If a slide does not have a quickhash-1, "No quickhash-1 available" will be printed.

slidetool slide vendor

Report the detected OpenSlide vendor name for one or more slide files.
