Abstract

The numerical dosimetry of pregnant women is one of the most important issues in electromagnetic-field safety. We have recently developed a whole-body numerical female model of an adult Japanese (non-pregnant) average figure. Therefore, a new fetus model including inherent tissues of pregnant women was constructed based on abdominal MRI data of a 7-month pregnant woman. A whole-body pregnant woman model was developed by combining the new fetus and the female models. The anatomical details of the developed pregnant woman model and basic SAR characteristics for whole-body exposure to RF electromagnetic fields are demonstrated.
