(a) Relations between islet diameter and the number (left panel) and total volume (right panel) of mouse islets. Redrawn from Hellman et al. [3]. (b) The largest cross sections were used for measuring the areas of small and big islets stained for glucagon and somatostatin. The contribution of a 5 μm disc to the total volume of the islet is illustrated.
