New field of application of fractal dimensions is proposed. A technique, based on the calculation of fractal dimension was used for identification of malignant and non-malignant growths. It was proved that results drastically depends on tissues properties. Nevertheless, results, which were obtained from fractal dimension, are in good correspond to results, obtained using technique of invariant Zernike moments. The possibility of application of both techniques to speckle-fields, formed by laser light dispersed on histological sections, in in vitro express-diagnostics of tissues with pathological changes is investigated.
