Paper Abstract

Application of polarized probe light and polarization discrimination of backscattered light give the additional possibilities for characterization and imaging of various diseases localized in superficial layers of tissues because of the high sensitivity of polarization state of multiply scattered light, which is detected in the backscattering mode, to alterations in optical parameters of the probed tissue. In this work we compare two methods of analysis of multiple scattering anisotropic media (demineralized bone), such as laser videoreflectometry and method of coherent backscattering. The agreement between results obtained with these two techniques is satisfactory.
