We too have been using a Microtek scanner with ImageStudio.  Just this
past week, we received word from Microtek about an upgrade.  For $995
the machine can be retrofitted with a scanning light source which 
allows trans-illumination of the image.  It was designed to be used
for scanning transparencies.  According to them, there is a more expensive
upgrade which will allow a greater range of densities to be scanned.
My colleague has sent some autorads to them for testing.  We hope to
find out soon whether a simple $1000 upgrade is enough.  I'll be sure
to post to this group once we find out.
