Abstract:

Power absorption calculations were performed for radiofrequency exposures 10-50 MHz using prolate spheroid models, and these data were compared with experimental data obtained from prolate spheroid monkey and human phantoms, and live monkeys. Agreement of spheroid calculations with empirical spheroid data was excellent however, it was found that ellipsoid models better approximate monkeys and humans. Author
