Abstract
The diffuse reflection and transmission coefficients, other optical parameters of normal and cancer tissues have been investigated in visible and infrared spectra. The optimal spectral range for distinguishing the cancer is found. The spectral absorption coefficients and size of cells parameter determined using our approach are analyzed to be different for normal and pathological tissues. The method is proposed for calculating the diffuse reflectance and transmittance of multiple tissue layers. The investigations have shown that cancer may be distinguished under the layers of skin and normal tissue.
