Assessment of Occupational Exposure of MRI Workers
Assessment of Occupational Exposure of MRI Workers Resulting from a Time-Varying Magnetic Field Associated with a Cylindrical Z-Gradient Coil
The exposure of staff in the vicinity of MRI scanners to low frequency (~ 1 kHz) time-varying fields associated with gradient coils is currently of interest in view of limits prescribed in the European Union Directive 2004/40/EC (1) due to be legally enforced from April 2008. Concern has been raised regarding the likely impact that exposure limits described in (1) will have on MRI practice but currently there is little information in the literature regarding such occupational exposure. In this work we address the interactions of a switched gradient magnetic field with a human body located near to a MRI scanner.

Evaluation of Implantable Antennas in Anatomical Body Models
This article from researchers at the University of Liverpool demonstrates the use of voxel models for analyzing implantable antenna designs, and compares homogeneous and heterogeneous body models.
Experimental measurements of implantable antennas in the...
Predicting SAR Behavior using Spherical Phantom Models
Due to the fact that measurements in true biological heads typically cannot be carried out, SAR norms for mobile phones or EMI problems are commonly defined in terms of standardized phantom models. In the easiest case, only spherical structures are considered....
RF Thermoablation in a Human Liver using the Bioheat Formulation
This article is concerned with the evaluation of the temperature distribution inside a human liver when a catheter is inserted. It summarizes the simulations performed with the HUGO and University of L'Aquila's ALES anatomical models. The co-simulation...
HUGO Human Body Model
This article demonstrates the capabilities for importing the HUGO dataset via the CST STUDIO SUITE® Voxel Data Interface. Once the model has been imported into the CST STUDIO SUITE, the materials are accessible via the navigation tree. Multiple selection...
EM field distribution and SAR in a Human Head with MRI Coil
In Ultra-High Field MRI systems, e.g. for B0 beyond 7 T, the performance of the RF coils is essential to provide a great image quality with a reasonable B1-field homogeneity in the imaging area, low SARs in the biological tissues and a good signal to...
