Methods of optical imaging used in medical diagnostic (with taking the newest diagnostic techniques into consideration in particular) have been presented. Selected optical characteristics of tissues having an influence on the range of the classical methods of the optical imaging have been discussed in detail. The respond to the classical method limitations was to use scanning methods and detection techniques consisting in three-dimensional imaging of tissue structures in real time. A specific eye structure allows the wide using of these techniques in ophthalmology. Such advantages like non-invasiveness, non-contactness and high resolution (guaranteeing the safety of a patient) show a huge success of these techniques. The results of the research (conducted in many research centers) point at the wider application possibility of optical scanning method in medical diagnostic.
