In addition to describing the Sedeen platform, the paper highlights some of the additional plugin modules developed by the PIIP team which are now distributed along with the viewer. A supplementary file describes the workflow needed to spatially align two IHC images and then carry out a quantitative comparison of tissue staining over corresponding regions of interest.
