Notice that when you call imshow you are providing the [] second parameter. That tells imshow() to effectively shift and scale the data so that it runs between 0 and 1. You can do the same tranformation:

newimage = squeeze(V(:,:,round(end/2)));
minimage = min(newimage(:));
maximage = max(newimage(:));
scaledimage = (newimage - minimage) ./ (maximage - minimage);
imwrite(scaledimage, 'filename.bmp');


Try casting everything to double to do the math, then cast back to uint8 inside the call to imwrite().

now it worked... thank you Walter Roberson and Image Analyst for your help....
