The polarization parameters of light transmitted through biological cells contain morphological and functional information for biomedical purposes. As more imaging became available to research applications, Mueller imaging’s importance has increased regularly in biomedical approach over the years. This paper summarizes the context of Mueller imaging and polarization optical analysis on blood cells for medical applications. Basically this method is related to Mueller Matrix Imaging Polarimetry. Knowing all 16-element Mueller matrix using 36 independent polarization states completely describes the blood cells in terms of birefringence properties.
