Eliminating non-viable cells from automated cell count

I am trying to find the number of foci per nuclei in ImageJ, and the problem that I am having is eliminating non-viable cells from the automated cell count. More specifically, the cells that are about to experience apoptosis have many, many spots within the cell --and I don’t want to count these cells, as they shouldn’t be part of the data. How can I prevent these cells from being part of the automated cell count?

Can you post an image here so we can better understand your problem?
