 Voronoi tessellation diagram is a well-known method for subdivision of a structure into polygons by seeded points that has been applied in different sciences (van Horssen et al., 2014; Safaeian and David, 2013; Safaeian et al., 2011).

 In another word, Voronoi polygon diagram is a method of dividing the heart structure into smaller polygons such that each polygon contains accurately one generating point (nucleus of cardiomyocytes or center of the microvessel), and every point in a given polygon is closer to its generating point than to any other (van Horssen et al., 2014; Safaeian and David, 2013; Safaeian et al., 2011).
 

 

Crdiomyocytes nuclei are marked and the polygons were superimposed on them using the software. 

 

 

The threshold changed to clear out the background. 
The areas of the polygons are estimated.
