A possible application of optical methods (dielectrophoresis, spectral and imaging ellipsometry, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy) for the early diagnostics in studies of red blood cells and serum in patients with the diffuse liver disease, with varying degrees of fibrosis, has been evaluated. As experimentally confirmed, the combined optical methods significantly improve the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy index in the diagnosis of both severe fibrosis and slight ulterior liver fibrosis. The identified optical methods diagnostic potential can be efficiently utilized in noninvasive screening evaluation of the stages of diffuse liver disease of various genesis.
