Hi All,

Our group is working on medical image processing using ITK imaging toolkit which internally is using the libtiff for tiff file access. Recently we were asked to work with Aperio slide scanner images which are recorded in tiff format using the JPEG2000 compression for tiles. I am wondering if anybody have implemented the J2K codec within the libtiff framework, even as an experiment, and if not, is it doable in principle and how difficult it would be to use, for example, libtiff/OpenJPEG combination to accomplish this goal? I tried to search the archive of this forum, but it seems the last libtiff-j2K discussion is dated back to 2005.

Thank you,

Alex Lisovich
