Optical techniques for investigation of structure of biological tissues (BTs) can be classified into three groups:

Spectrophotometric techniques [1], based on the analysis of spatial or temporal changes of intensity of a field scattered by BTs;

Polarization techniques based on the use of the coherency matrix for a complex amplitude [2, 3] and the analysis of the degree of polarization as the factor of correlation of the orthogonal complex components of electromagnetic oscillations at the specified point of a scattered field;

Correlation techniques based on the analysis of correlations of the parallel polarization components at different points of the object field [4].
