Problem with the Image Calculator

María Victoria Pepe
Hi!!

I´ve a problem with the Image Calculator. I wanted to evaluate the number
of bacteria in a z-stack and I decided to sum all the slices (Sum Slices)
and then make a mask of the bacteria, and use the AND function of the Image
Calculator to evaluate only the fluorescence that matches the mask. The
result of this operation gives me a dotted image. When I convert the image
to 16 bit, I don't have this problem, but I need to keep the image in 32
bit. I am not sure what mistake I am making. I wanted to know if you could
help me.

Thank you very much

I suspect that you are using a logical bit by bit AND on a 32 bit image.
This will not work.

What I do in such cases is convert the mask to an image that contains
only 1 and 0 (eg by integer division by 255), and then
multiplying the two images, instead of logical AND.
