Computation of Fields and SAR for MRI with Finite-difference, Time-domain Software

RF and microwave technology has been utilized in numerous medical applications, such as the study of electromagnetic radiation on the human body. Mobile handset and antenna manufacturers have performed Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) measurements and/or...
In most fields today, electronic devices must meet strict certification requirements to ensure that humans are not exposed to excessive levels of radiated energy. If sufficiently high levels of power, quantified as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), are dissipated in human tissue, the result could be tissue heating and...
