Partial-Body SAR Calculations in Magnetic-Resonance Image (MRI) Scanning Systems [Telecommunications Health and Safety]

Abstract

To ensure that the radio-frequency (RF) energy absorbed by human subjects during MRI does not produce any harmful health effects to the patient - including local thermal damage or whole-body thermoregulatory challenges - regulatory entities have set limits on the maximum local, partial-body, and whole-body specific absorption rates (SAR) of RF energy.
