If you decide to get a scan, I suggest a Creo scan. It's a high-end flatbed. Have a wet scan done and have a pigment print made from the scan. It's not a silver process but I do a fair amount of this and the prints I have made compare well with Dye-Transfers done in the past. You may want to talk to your printer before ordering the scan.
Chrome in San Diego Ca has a Scitex-Creo machine. Have a look at their web page. The custom scans are at the bottom of the scan page.
