    scan or photo of xray

    Hi, I've logged onto this board to ask if anyone can tell me how to make a computer scan of an xray, or take a digital photo of it. I just get black when I try. Much appreciated.

    Hello, Mia

    A scanner won't do it so use a camera. It needs to be lit from the back. A light table (as used for sorting slides) would work.

    Try taping it to a window and let sunlight shine through it. You'd probably need to use a tripod.

    how did you do that!

    Okay -- how did you do that!! I also tried just "popping" the xray into my scanner but just got black... I was resigned to taking a photo with the xray on the window.

    Well, I expected it to be black because I didn't think there would be enough reflected light.

    Set, did you use a transparency adapter?

    Well, OK.

    I may have been wrong on something once before, too.
