We report the results of comparative non-invasive screening of cancerous and noncancerous tissue samples in vitro with two major polarization-based diagnostic modalities utilizing Jones vector and Mueller matrix formalisms. The technical aspects of both experimental approaches, peculiarities of data analysis, detected signal formation, opportunities for clinical use, future perspectives and developments are presented and discussed.
