Optical diagnostic methods of biological media are more and more willingly used in clinical practice - also instead of classical biopsy. Particularly, optical coherent tomography methods and mammography (permitting achieving three-dimensional imaging of a tissue) are attractive in comparison with classical diagnostic methods. The article presents the analysis methods of optical parameters of biological tissues developed allowing obtaining absolute values of these parameters. Thanks to modern image analysis methods - wavelet transforms - the optical diagnostic effectiveness was improved. The theoretical and practical results achieved were compared with results of commercially accessible methods implemented in OCT devices.
