Seven pancreases from nondiabetic autopsy cases were submitted to morphometrical analysis of the islets of Langerhans as a preliminary investigation of the diabetic pancreas. The pancreatic islets were approximately simulated by spheres of different sizes randomly dispersed in the three-dimensional space; thereon the parameters of Weibull function assumed for the distribution of islet radii were estimated stereologically from chord length measurements on histologic sections taken from different… CONTINUE READING
