Abstract
This work presents the possibility of phase tomography of optical-anisotropic multilayered biological structures. The superposition approach of polarization manifestation of optical anisotropy of polycrystalline protein networks is proposed. The optical model of polycrystalline networks of biological tissues protein fibrils is presented. The technique of phase tomography based on determining the coordinate distributions of Mueller-matrix elements of biological tissues is suggested. The results of investigating the interrelation between the values of statistical (statistical moments of the 1st- 4th order) parameters are presented. They characterize the coordinate distributions of phase shifts of biological tissue layer of different optical thickness and the degree of muscle dystrophy.
