In this chapter, polarization-sensitive techniques for imaging and functional diagnosis of biological tissue are considered. Methods are described based on polarization discrimination of a probe polarized light that is scattered by, or transmitted through, a tissue or a cell structure. The advantages of polarization methods for tissue imaging and functional diagnostics are discussed. It is shown that polarization-spectral selection of scattered radiation and polarization-fluorescence method significantly improve the diagnostic potential of the method.
