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 the conversion to a Windows bitmap after adjusting contrast, etc., but you will lose the 16-bit precision. Take a look at:
