Figure 3 Heatmap and color scale. We traced the major structures [i.e., pancreatic parenchyma, spleen, splenic artery, splenic vein, and lymph nodes (LNs)] around the No. 11d LN region in case 4. The number of LNs is represented as a heatmap. We made the heatmap using the color scale function of Microsoft Excel for Mac (version 16.16.27[202012]). The scale is set to show that the number of LNs increases as the color changes from yellow to red. The colored cells with numbers are LN heatmaps. LN: Lymph node; Sp: Spleen; Panc: Pancreas; SpA: Splenic artery; SpV: Splenic vein.
