Reading and displaying images with .SCN file extension at full resolution

Hello,
I am trying to load and display images that have a .SCN file extension (from Aperio ImageScope). I am using the imread() and imshow() functions to do this. However, when I try to zoom in on the images, I am not getting the same high resolution that I get when zooming in on Aperio ImageScope. When I use the cpselect tool, I am able to see the full resolution image. How can I get the same resolution and image that I see in Aperio ImageScope in MATLAB? Are there other loading and displaying functions for these file types?
Thank you!

I'm given to understand the '.scn' is a BIOFORMATS file. The association that created the format, "The Open Microscopy Environment", has posted a function called "bfopen" that has this capability.

Hi again,
Your calculations were right, because increasing the Java heap memory to its max didn't change anything. Thank you for the advice. If you have any suggestions, they would be much appreciated.
