Herein, we are making a step forward by treating cancerous tissues as the highly disordered anisotropic media. The classical Maxwell-Garnett technique is utilized. The former stands for as a perfect tool allowing to evaluate an effective medium of the sample analytically with no needs of human intervention by performing an experimental analysis to measure the parameters of the sample. It should be noted, that laboratory measurements of the effective properties are not needed in this case as well. In this relation, the presented technique allows for the creation of the phantom tissue models for the further usage in clinical applications.
