This research is aimed to investigate the reliability of Mueller-matrix differentiation of birefringence change of optically thick layers of biological liquid crystals at the early stages of the change in their physiological state. This is performed by measuring the set of skewness and kurtosis values of Mueller matrix image of the phase element M44 in various points of the object under investigation.
