Abstract

This paper presents finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) calculations of the whole-body averaged SAR in an anatomically realistic voxel model of the human body. This model, NORMAN, consists of approximately 9 million voxels, of 2 mm dimension in the adult phantom, segmented into 37 tissue types. SAR values are presented for an adult phantom and for scaled 10, 5 and 1 year old models, grounded and isolated in air from 1 MHz to 1 GHz for plane wave exposure. External electric field values corresponding to a whole-body averaged SAR of 0.4 W kg-1 are also presented.
