Validation of numerical methods for electromagnetic dosimetry through near-field measurements
AbstractThis paper describes the arrangement of a first experimental set-up which allows the comparison between the measurement of the electromagnetic field quantities induced inside a simple cylindrical phantom and the same quantities estimated numerically through a boundary element method. The reliability of the numerical method has been tested at 64 MHz, the Larmor frequency associated to the magnetic resonance imaging devices with an isocenter magnetic field of 1.5 T. To assess its robustness, the comparison is also performed by introducing, inside the phantom, a metallic non magnetic element, which roughly simulates a medical implant.
