The bioheat equation is solved for an anatomically-based model of the human head with resolution of 3/spl times/3 mm to study the thermal implications of exposure to EM fields typical of cellular telephones both at 835 and 1900 MHz. Up to 4.5/spl deg/C temperature elevation may be caused for some locations of the pinna by a cellular telephone warmed by electronic circuitry to temperatures as high as 39/spl deg/C, with temperature increases for the internal tissues such as the brain and the eye… CONTINUE READING
