Abstract:

It has been suggested that pulsed radiofrequency radiation RFR fields may produce different specific absorption rate SAR distributions than continuous wave CW exposures. SAR distributions were measured in a muscle- equivalent slab for various RFR frequencies and duty-cycle combinations. No significant differences in SAR distribution between pulsed and CW were measured.
