Perfectly even diffused light and if need be, just turn up the brightness to suit. You could try taking out the light bulb and hope the scanner doesn't complain.
You might be able to get it to look good with both front and back lighting... so the scanner mod might not be necessary. Laptops and LCDs tend to have a plastic light diffuser that spreads the light out evenly across the entire surface (even though the bulb is on the bottom).
Try putting a mirror or similar reflective surface instead of white lid. You might be able to use your phone's LED light if you can 't get an incandescent lamp.
I know you said without buying additional equipment, but I wanted to point out that they make scanners with transparency capabilities. Basically they have an additional “head” in the lid that provides a light to shine through the film when necessary.
I just used the scanner settings of 600 dpi with the grayscale selection and my rays came out just like the digital print out. The reputation requirement helps protect this question from spam and non-answer activity.
The thieves load the boxes of X -rays into a truck and drive off, leaving a happy healthcare organization behind. It’s not until weeks later, when neither a check for the silver content nor a recycle certificate shows up that the healthcare facility realizes they’ve been had.
These thieves get paid twice…once when they sell the harvested patient data and again for the silver content when they off-load the film to a recycler. In 2013, Raleigh Orthopedic Clinic provided patient X -rays to a third-party vendor, which sold the films to an Ohio-based recycling company that harvested the silver from the X -rays.
Under federal data breach rules established in 2009, hospitals and other so-called covered entities like doctors’ offices often have to report data breaches, whether paper or digital, to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and in many cases, also to the individual patients whose information was involved. Some providers may no longer have current contact information for some patients who may be affected, so notification becomes even more difficult, and may require posting a notice on their website.
Scanning x-rays to digital format also allows you the ability to use these images in projections or PowerPoint presentations. So if you scan crayfish to disc but need a hard copy don’t worry, converting back to film is a snap.
X -rays are images that use a small doses of ionized radiation to take pictures of the inside of your body called radiographs. Doctors can also use X -rays to find an object that a child or adult swallowed.
Doctors look closely at the images for signs of cancer or other issues. It’s most commonly done to look at bones, muscles, joints, and organs like your heart, kidneys, and lungs.
The doctor may ask you to take off jewelry, eyeglasses, or any metal objects or clothing that could get in the way of the image. Your hard, dense bones block that beam, so they show up as white on the film below you.
They might use pillows or sandbags to prop up a body part to get a better view of the area. They’ll probably ask you to hold your breath, so the image doesn’t blur.
If you stay in the room with them, you’ll get a lead apron to wear to prevent radiation exposure. X -rays are great to check for broken bones or rotting teeth, but other imaging tests are better if you have something happening with the soft tissue parts of your body such as the kidneys, intestines, or your brain.
