Function to read the HIS file format used by PerkinElmer XIS X-ray imaging software.
The other exportable file formats in XIS either had no support in Matlab, produced non-standard files which imread could not properly interpret, or truncated the intensity range.
It turned out the native HIS file format was quite simple, and I was able to reverse engineer it enough to get the data out I needed.
It has only been tested with HIS files created by XIS v. 184.108.40.206. It should work for all image sizes, although I have only tested it with 1024x1024. Because of this, it might have the rows/columns order mixed up. Please let me know if you have other files to test with.
