[Image-SIG] Image Problems

Special Interest Group Members,

I am a student at Purdue University.  Myself and two other students are 
working on our senior design project and we have hit a snag when trying to 
import and view an image file.  The file is a multi-slide picture from a CAT 
scan machine.  For our project we need to be able to view the slides and 
also change the grey-scale information into a data range.

We do know that the file type is not a built-in PIL format.  We know the 
slide resolutions (512x512), there are 143 slides, the bytes per pixel (16 
bytes), the gap between slides (0 bytes), and that it's a 16 bit unsigned 
little endian format.

Is there a way that we can get Python to import this file and be able to 
view the slices by using a scroll button or the arrow keys?  Or should we be 
looking into another imaging program that already has this capability?

Thanks for the time,
