Abstract

We measure the absolute or relative volume of the islets and other pancreatic tissue components using two methods each of which requires examination of cross sections. In the linear scan procedure, lengths of linear intercepts over different tissue components are used to estimate corresponding areas and volumes. In the point count method, points falling on different components are used to estimate corresponding areas and volumes.
