On the basis of investigations of tumors with different pathology in vitro, the optical sensor, allowing us to differentiate a malignant tumor from a non-malignant one and from normal tissue, with a high degree of certainty was received. This method is based on the measuring of multiple light scattering by tissue slabs in the visible and near infrared spectral regions and careful analysis of significant chromophores researched tissues, not limited only by the degree of oxygenation. In our mind, the proposed approach has some advantages in comparison with luminescent methods because it allows one to make the quantitative assessment, and also to use them for transcutaneous measurements in vivo.
