Optical imaging and spectroscopy of objects inside high scattering medium by use of light instead of X-rays are named an optical tomography. The optical tomography applied for medical diagnose seems to be very promising due to low risk of genetic changes inside living cells during visible and infrared photon treatments of tissue in contradiction to the X-ray examinations. The aim of the paper is to present short an overview of different kinds of the medical optical tomography. The main attention is done for current problems of the medical optical tomography. Some results of clinical tests of an optoelectronic mammoscope based on two wavelength transiluminance method for breast cancer imaging are presented as well.
