Abstract
Summary of the results of measurements taken by the University of Washington, Bioelectromagnetic Laboratory personnel while on a field trip to USAF School of Aerospace Medicine to compare the delivery system of a near field synthesizer, designed to assess the biological effects of high frequency fields, to that of the Very High Frequency cavity system at the University of Washington, under Interagency Agreement NIOSH-IA-75-30. Various models of animals and humans were exposed to radiofrequency fields and power absorption patterns and the rate of power absorption at specific anatomical locations within the models were thermographically recorded under simulated industrial exposure conditions. The results of the modeling research demonstrate the validity of this technique for predicting the magnitude and distribution of radiofrequency power absorption in humans and animals. The utility of the technique for extrapolation to human radiofrequency exposure thresholds from animal data was firmly established.
