Re: import 16-bit greyscale TIFF file

There are two ways that you might try:

1. If you have any paint-type application you could open the TIFF, copy it
to the clipboard, and then paste into your Mathematica notebook.
2. image=Import[<TIFF pathname>,"TIFF"]; Show[image];

I have checked that that this works on an 8-bit greyscale TIFF, so I can't
be certain that it works for a 16-bit TIFF.
