The S-FEG and Helios NanoLab systems store metadata as key/value pairs in TIFF tags 34680 and 34682, respectively.

We should parse these values into the original metadata table. Ideally, we should also standardize the metadata we can as OME-XML.

Sample data can be found in data/tiff/jonathan.

The script shows how to compute physical pixel sizes from the metadata present.
