This report summarizes research progress in the period from June 1, 1983 to May 31, 1984 in studies of the specific absorption rate SAR in a model of the human body exposed to radiofrequency radiation in the far and near field of antennas. The objective of the project was to develop and evaluate a computer-controlled system for measurements of the spatial distribution of the SAR in simulated and real biological bodies and to perform measurements on a model of the human body in the near field of typical antennas. In summary, our investigations of the SAR distribution in a full-scale mode of man showed that relevant dosimetric data in the far and the near field can be conveniently and accurately obtained by the measurements using implantable electric field probes and computer-controlled data acquisition system. Such information cannot be reliably obtained using presently available numerical methods.
