Can any one recommends a good scanner with densitometer
which I can buy for x-ray image?

Do you want a scanner for X

Do you want a scanner for X-ray film (eg chemiluminesce/Western) or do you want a complete imaging system? If its the former, an easy solution is to get a good mid level (600x1200dpi resolution atleast) scanner from HP/Acer/Epson, and get densitometric software such as ImageQuant from Fuji or KDS-1D from Kodak to analyse the scanned images.

BTW, our institution just acquired the Fujifilm LAS-3000 Imaging System. It's quite expensive but it's versatile, as it can be used for fluorescence and luminiscence. I'm happy with it for now.
