This paper investigates the temperature rise in a 1-D layered tissue model, which is irradiated with nonionizing radiation. Of the numerous tissue configurations that correspond to realistic body trunk and limb representations, only those are examined which maximize the averaged specific absorption rate (SAR). The results show that the old IEEE standard on safety was more conservative in terms of temperature rise than the Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection guidelines. They also indicate that the… CONTINUE READING
