Written by Eric Corwin.

Can be used instead of "read_nih" to read in multiple-image tiff files.

IDL> a = readtiffstack('stack.tif')

Alternately: I found recently (4/2004) that someone had produced some NIH files that couldn't be read by either read_nih nor readtiffstack. We downloaded ImageJ (click here) which can run under Linux. This can read in NIH files (it's a version of NIH Image) and write out tiff stacks, which can then be read by readtiffstack. Obviously this is more painful than one would like, however, it is a solution that works for now.
