Abstract

SAR (specific absorption rate) patterns have been determined for four commercially available microwave (915 MHz) applicators: the BSD MA-151 mini dual ridge waveguide applicator, the BSA MA-100 side-loaded waveguide applicator, the BSD MA-251 interstitial applicator, and the Clinitherm interstitial applicator. Values of SAR were determined using 1) a miniature implantable isotropic electric field probe, 2) high resistance thermistor probes, 3) fluoroptic probes, 4) custom miniature fluoroptic probes and 5) thermographic cameras. Similar results were obtained when each applicator was characterized by the different methods.
