Thanks for checking the type of your image.
SNAP uses images with pixel type = "unsigned short",
This type will not be appropriate for representing
your "float" image.
What type of error did you got from SNAP when you
attempted to read this image ?
You have two options
1) Convert your "float" image to "unsigned short"
using the example
You will have to modify its code in order to
make sure that you are reading "float" and
writing "unsigned short". Note that this example
uses the RescaleIntensityImage filter, which
in addition to casting is scaling the intensity
values of your image. For details on this example,
Please read the ITK Software Guide
Section 6.2.1, pdf-page 146.
2) Modify the code in SNAP in order to accept float
images. This option will require a significant
amount of effort. SNAP is probalby the more
complex application in Insight Applicatinos.
I will strongly suggest you to attempt option (1) first.
