Philips Isyntax

Are there any plans to open Philips isyntax slides in QUPATH?
SDK https://www.openpathology.philips.com/downloads/

You might be interested in this thread.

@Gondim No, this is not something that can be resolved on the QuPath side. It is entirely up to Philips; as far as I can tell, their proprietary SDK is not compatible with QuPath’s open source license.

You’ll need to convert the files, e.g. with https://www.glencoesoftware.com/blog/2019/12/09/converting-whole-slide-images-to-OME-TIFF.html

See also the QuPath docs https://qupath.readthedocs.io/en/latest/docs/intro/formats.html#isyntax-philips

@Research_Associate @petebankhead Philips released more info today about isyntax . Would this change anything? https://twitter.com/Philips_Path/status/1262760508635004931

Thanks for the link - very interesting, I didn’t know anything about it. I haven’t looked very closely, but if it is really open source-friendly then support in QuPath might become possible eventually.

Personally, I don’t have any iSyntax files and therefore it is not something I can/wish to work on myself any time soon. But if it could be supported in Bio-Formats, then QuPath (and many other projects) would benefit immediately.
