Abstract : The goal of this project is to advance the state of the art of RFR dosimetry to a level of sophistication where computer graphically generated, high-resolution SAR distributions can be obtained and displayed with anatomical features for any section of the human body. Procedures are to be developed to allow modeling of the realistic exposure conditions for whole-body or partial-body irradiation due to spatially uniform or nonuniform (far-field or near-field) EM fields that are CW, pulsed, or transient in nature. Effects will also be directed at improving thermal models of the human body so that expected temperature distributions due to RFR exposure can be predicted and displayed graphically. Participants have generated recommendations for research in subspecialty areas relevant to the above, such as standard models of humans and animals, graphical display methods, numerical algorithms; validation of computer-generated data, extrapolation of SAR data to thermal physiology, and others.
