The reference levels for testing compliance of human exposure with radio-frequency (RF) safety limits have been derived from very simplified models of the human. In order to validate these findings for anatomical models, we investigated the absorption characteristics for various anatomies ranging from 6 year old child to large adult male by numerical(More)
The C-reactive protein (CRP) level was evaluated in 142 infants requiring investigation for suspected infection.

These were based on various radiation effects, including blackening of photographic film, chemical effects, fluorescence and skin erythema. Some were also based on(More)
