Abstract:

Experimental studies were undertaken to evaluate if pulsed fields may act differently on biological systems than continued fields of the same average power. The conclusion of this work confirmed theoretical predictions that field evoked forces act at best as CW fields of the same average power. Calculations which concern the possibility of creating hot spots in tissues by microwave irradiation were performed. The conclusion of this work is that hot spots are possible in objects with a radius of curvature up to 5 cm, but not likely in man. Animal work is therefore not necessarily of significance for man.
