Verification is required to show that the physical pixel sizes of an image are properly preserved when reading/writing with the bf-itk plug-in.

If they are not, the plug-in must be fixed to propagate these values.

Pixel Spacing was revealed to be improperly preserved when writing with the bf-itk-pipes plug-in. ITK appears to be using a default unit of mm, while Bio-Formats uses um.

Pixel physical sizes are multiplied by 1000 when writing, and divided by 1000 when reading the image information.
