Abstract:

This report is an attempt to consolidate electrical parameter values of some human body tissues for the radiofrequency radiation range 10 - 10,000 MHz. The sources of the data were widely distributed in scientific journals, books, and technical reports and included data points secured by experimental techniques, by computations Debye or modified Debye equations, and by curve fitting methods. Values extracted from the conductivity and dielectric constant curves provided in the report give reasonable estimates of the interrelationships between various tissues over the frequency range of interest. These values are important in the study of effects of radiofrequency radiation on living organisms.
