Just a quick note: If you've got to deal with 16-bit grayscale images, I recommend looking at the ImageJ program. It's open-source imaging software for working with scientific and medical images. It supports 16-bit grayscale, and even 32-bit floating point grayscale. Very handy. It can do
ImageMagick (http://www.imagemagick.org) will support 16-bit grayscale as well, althought it is not as memory efficient as it could be since it internally stores the grayscale as RGB with 64-bit pixels.
