Import ISQ files to other Systems
Below are two ways to import ISQ files
The Scanco Way
Andres Laib from SCANCO once sent me a bunch of ImageJ Plugins which can be used to read ISQ files. They are all contained in this zip file (10 kB).
To install, copy the .class-files from this archive to the “plugins” folder of ImageJ, then choose “Plugins → Shortcuts → Install Plugin” to install the plugin into the Plugins Menu (see image on the right).
After successful installation of the plugin, you can use it by choosing: P“lugins → Import ISQ”.
If the ISQ file you want to read is too large for your current ImageJ install, increase its memory under “Edit → Options → Memory & Threads” (or use Fiji).
Karl-Heinz Kunzelmann Way
Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Kunzelmann has also written a nice ImageJ Plugin to import ISQ files. Find all the details on this plugin on his website. I actually prefer this one to “the SCANCO way”, since Mr. Kunzelmanns plugin also plays nicely with the brightness of the imported ISQ files.
