Topic: PDF Files too large

I have a scanner that came with software allowing me to scan into PDF format. I have to scan about 5000 patient charts, some handwritten, some images (I don't care about detail) and only need greyscale. Using this program, I'm getting huge PDF files, such as 4 megs for a 10 page chart. Yet if I use PDFWriter to convert WORD documents and image documents, on a cheaper and crummier scanner, I get the same chart at 36K. Most of these documents can not be scanned using OCR. Any help would be appreciated!
