I don't understand. What function did you use? The fact that you want to keep only one value implies that you have two, hence my simple fix.
MATLAB's acos however only returns a single positive solution. If you want a negative solution, just multiply by -1, as cos(x)=cos(-x)
"For real elements of x in the interval [-1,1], acos(x) returns real values in the interval [0,pi]." - the doc
