Accessing FormData data from $request

I'm trying to upload files via AJAX call to a route.

The file is uploaded via FormData object embedded into the ajax call like so :

method: 'POST',
data: formdata
... })

I can access the non 'file' data, such as simple key, value pairs using ' $request->getParsedBody() ' but cannot access the file, in this case an image.

And I know that the image file is being sent because when I check the 'network' information in my developer console, the file is part of the request body.

Also the $_FILES array is empty. $_POST array doesn't contain files.
