  annote = {Accurate sampling of islet graft suspension is confounded
                  by the islet size heterogeneity.  Assessment of
                  multiple samples is advisable.  Current islet
                  counting methods remain time- and
                  labour-intensive. We tested precision of automated
                  assessment of multiple islet images by a simple
                  learning algorithm. We generated the ground truth
                  upon which a trainable algorithm was developed. The
                  ground truth consisted of 12 islet images manually
                  segmented in triplicates by four experienced
                  operators using the gray-level thresholding. Next,
                  training of Linear Perceptron algorithm (features =
                  RGB) on individual images generated automatic
                  classifiers, which in turn were used to assess islet
                  images (dithizone-stained human islets with ~40%
                  exocrine tissue). The areas assigned to individual
                  islets were converted to the islet equivalents (IE)
                  using extended Ricordi table, d=2sqrt(area/ pi). The
                  first twelve images were segmented in triplicates by
                  four experienced operators using manual
                  thresholding. The coefficient of variation (CV) was
                  0.07?0.03 (n=36). Next, the training of the
                  automatic classifiers on the same set of images
                  reached similar precision (CV 0.07?0.04,
                  n=48). These 48 trained classifiers automatically
                  segmented the remaining 11 images with variation
                  similar to that reported for the manual islet
                  counting (median CV 0.08, range 0.03-0.16, n=528).
                  Additional 25 classifiers were trained on 25 images
                  of a single swirled-rearranged tissue sample, and
                  then used to assess the remaining 24 images.  The
                  islet designated area (CV 0.11-0.12, n=600) was
                  translated into average of 150 IE per sample (range
                  140-167 IE, CV 0.13, n=600). Anaysis of 25 images by
                  a trained classifier required 3 minutes including
                  the training of the classifier.  CONCLUSIONS: The
                  data demonstrate feasibility of utilisation of a
                  trainable algorithm for rapid analysis of multiple
                  islet images. Development of more advanced algorithm
                  is under way. Supported by Health Ministry, Czech
