Image data type in C#

Aquarus asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
In DataLayer of my project I use the following template to pass the recordset data from SP to the Apllication:
        public class ClassDetail
            public ClassDetail(IR_USP_SPResult detail)
                this.PBT = detail.PBT;

            private string  PBT  { get; set; }

DataMember define the fieldname datatype from the Select statement of the Storeprocedure  with the name IR_USP_SPResult .

I have to create something similar for the select statement of the stored procedure that returns only one field from the table and the datatype of this field is image.

I have already tried
using System.Drawing at the top of my project and this addition allowed me to do the part of the template like this:
            private Image  PBT  { get; set; }

But on the step where I am assigning the outside data to the internal:
public ClassDetail(IR_USP_SPResult detail)
                this.PBT = detail.PBT;
I see the red line under detail.PBT and it says that I cannot assign image type to the binary type. What am I doing wrong?
