I want to efficiently open qptiff images with Napari. qptiff images are whole slide images acquired with a Vectra Polaris. In the following example, the image I want to load is 43200x62640, with 9 different resolutions.
I first tried to use python-bioformats, but I get a Java exception:
JavaException: Array size too large: 43200 x 62640 x 1
I then tried using tifffile that allows to read qptiff as well. It works, but it takes more than 10s to read the file using tifffile.imread and about 1min to load it with Napari. As a comparison, it takes less than 5s to load the same image with QuPath. Is there a more efficient way to load a qptiff file with Napari?
Thanks a lot!
