We develop novel optical and ultrasound techniques for medical noninvasive diagnostics and treatment. In this review, we present our results on the development of: 1) optoacoustic technique for detection of small tumors; 2) optoacoustic monitoring of blood oxygenation; 3) optoacoustic monitoring during thermotherapy; 4) optical coherence tomography for monitoring of blood glucose concentration; and 5) laser- and ultrasound-based anti-cancer drug delivery technique. Motivation, experimental methods, results obtained in vitro and in vivo with the use of these techniques are presented.
