But why did you expected the values will be in 0.0,1.0 range? If we have floating point data then the whole range can be occupied. For displaying purposes you should find min/max values yourself and scale image properly.
How does one scale the image "properly" without knowing what the image is supposed to look like? Mapping the min/max values of the data to min/max intensity values doesn't necessarily make sense.
