Tiff images are widely used and domain and instrument specific information is often included in some tags. There isn't any standard way of making use of this information in ITK at present. This article introduces some minor additions to the ITK tiff reader to include the content of some potentially useful tags in the image MetaDataDictionary, thus enabling domain specific information to be extracted from the tags within an ITK application.
