Based on the mathematical models of the experimentally fitted spectrum of index inhomogeneities, we analyze the electromagnetic field scattered from biological tissue. The resulting cross-spectral density matrices are expressed in spherical polar coordinates and the two-dimensional definition of polarization could be used. The results show that the polarization characteristics of the far scattered field depend closely on the types of the tissue.
