The purpose of this MQP has been to create an accurate cross-platform CAD representation of the male human body for the use in electromagnetic computer simulations. The model is to be employed as a substitute for the human body for SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) estimations. An emerging application includes estimations of the heating rate and temperature rise for metallic implants in the MRI machine. During the MQP project period, we have created a manifold CAD model with 233 individual tissue parts in the form of triangular meshes. All tissue parts are true 2-manifold CAD meshes; these meshes do not intersect. The model is being tested in an MRI RF coil using FEM ANSYS HFSS software.
