Abstract

A method of polarization mapping of the optical-anisotropic polycrystalline networks of the blood plasma albumin and globulin proteins with adjusted spatial-frequency filtering of the coordinate distributions of the azimuth and ellipticity of the polarization of laser radiation in the Fourier plane is proposed and substantiated. A set of criteria of diagnosing prostate cancer based on the statistical correlation and fractal analysis of the spatial-frequency filtered polarization distributions generated by dendritic networks of albumin and globulin spherulitic networks has been detected and substantiated.
