A SIS file is an image data file saved in the ImageCore format, which is commonly used by arivis Vision4D imaging science software. It contains image data, which may include spatial plane, channel, and frame dimension data. SIS files support 8 bit, 16 bit, 32 bit, and 32 bit (float) data depths and also store metadata and color settings.

More Information

You can view 2D and 3D images, as well as 4D images, which is a 3D image that includes time data.
