Using a reference target to calibrate, see for example
http://www.targets.coloraid.de/ and

with command
convert image file scanner-profile monitor-profile new-filename
to get a corrected image file.

Also to check, the backing of the scanner, if it is black and the
scanned images are on thin paper, scanning noise of the black backing is
possible, using a white paper between the backing and the image can
reduce the blue noise.
