Digitising of radiographs.

Does anyone have experience with digitising of radiographs? Due to major storage problems, we are considering either purchasing equipment or contracting a service. Please advise on possible equipment suppliers as well as the merits of this approach.

My company Digital Imaging Servcies (DIS) performs digitization of radiographs for the nuclear, petrochemical and aerospace industries and sometimes the artworld. We have a scanning center in Birmingham, Alabama and offices in Atlanta, Georgia.

DIS is a division of Advanced Xray Inc. We developed the AXIS software for digitization, archiving and enhancment of film radiographs.

If you need any information please email me or call me at (205) 714-3701.

Sincerely,

J. Mark Davis

Re: Digitising of radiographs.
Shawn,
Our company, Retriever Technology, manufactures radiograph film =
scanners, and provides a digitization service. You can go to our site =
at www.retrievertech.com to get a better idea. =20

Our typical service is to provide multiple copies of your films on CD-R, =
in a .tif format, using 14-bit data. The data is open format, =
non-proprietary, and will be provided will a low cost commerically =
available searchable database that can be used on a PC or Mac based =
network. Our scanners can capture data as dark as OD 5.0, at resolutions =
as fine as 10 microns. The cost depends on many factors, most important =
the scanning location (i.e. if we do it at your facility, or here at our =
facility in Santa Fe, NM), and the number of films.

If you are interested, please give me a call and we can discuss your =
needs. If you wish, we could digitize a couple of sample films for your =
inspection.=20

Regards,
Andy
