This paper presents a detailed numerical study of specific absorption rate (SAR) and temperature increase calculations within pregnant female models exposed to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Nine pregnant female models, representing different pregnant stages, were used for this study. SAR and temperature increase within and around fetuses at different pregnancy stages were calculated for two MRI operating modes (normal mode and first-level controlled mode) at 64 and 128 MHz. Local fetus… CONTINUE READING
