Regression relations are found between the microphysical parameters (MPPs) of human blood erythrocytes and the angular coefficients of linear polarization P(Θ), as well as between the MPPs of erythrocytes and angular coefficients of linear polarization P(Θ) together with the directional scattering coefficients β(Θ). The efficiency of using these regression relations for determining the MPPs of erythrocytes is estimated. It is shown that the involvement of polarization measurements allows one to reduce the error in the retrieval of MPPs, as well as of the size and volume distribution functions, to ∼3%.
