The image comes from a CCD Thomson Camera (TH-8430), and it is saved on a 16-bit buffer, so the data range is [0,4095]. Finally i displayed it with libtiff libraries, but I think it can improve, i'll take a look to the DGM 1.1.
If it was saved as 16 bit/sample - then the data should have been scaled to 0..65535.
(although several companies have made the mistake of not scaling -- it is spelled out pretty clearly in the TIFF spec.)
