I have a dental office that wants me to scan their dental xrays so that
they can be emailed.

I would really appreciate any recommendations on a scanner that can do
this. They have two films they are useing (1) pana @ ~126mm x ~280mm and
(2) ~32mm x ~42mm.

The second smaller one is sometimes held in a black plastic carrier(?) that
holds around 15. They are also sometimes held in a clear plastic sheet with
pockets that is about the same size as (1).

Both are your standard xray transparency film so a backlight would be
necessary. I have a Nikon 4000ED but I can't find any way to make it accept
the small x-rays and it can't accept the larger ones so I think a flat bed
would be best.

If you don't have a recommendation on a specific scanner then I would like
to know what kind of resolution would I need to look for when scanning x-
ray film.

Thanx, Dave.

Look at Microtek ScanMaker i900 or ArtixScan 1800f

HP Scanjet G4050

It has a transparency scanner lid adapter included.

Settings:

Millions of colors
Scan slides
100% scale
300dpi


It may have difficulty with some of the holders that dental xray slides are held in, but, xrays themselves come out just as nice as with $1700 transparency scanners.

Good Luck
