Using a specially elaborated computer software and research setup, within the scope of this paper, projection and tomographic calculations (simulation) and real measurements of biological media by means of ultrasound were carried out, and the images of different parameters of the ultrasonic wave run through biological objects were obtained. The images were analyzed from the point of view of the precision of representation of the structures and visualization of different features of these structures. On the basis of the results obtained it can be said that such a complex multi-parameter ultrasound transmission tomography (MUTT) is best suited for diagnosing early stages of tumors in tissues, and especially women's breast tumors, because of the structure of this organ and its possible scanning in vivo from many directions.
