Scanned image distorted in ELEMENTS

I scanned a piece of artwork in black and white and saved it as a TIFF file. When I open it with Photoshop Elements, I get the message "This file was created to be viewed on a television screen, but will appear compressed on your computer monitor. For optimal editing, it is recommended that you use a video monitor to preview and edit this image." It does not appear distorted, but when I copy and paste it into a PSD document, the image is distorted.

Sounds like it was scanned with an odd aspect ratio (different resolution vertically and horizontally), and Elements confused that aspect ratio with an NTSC video aspect ratio.
