According to a study from the United States, "In this paper, we present a numerical model for evaluating tissue heating during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our method, which included a detailed anatomical model of a human head, calculated both the electromagnetic power deposition and the associated temperature elevations during an MRI head examination. Numerical studies were conducted using a realistic birdcage coil excited at frequencies ranging from 63 to 500 MHz."
"The model was validated both experimentally and analytically," said...
