High-Order Electromagnetic Modeling of Shortwave Inductive Diathermy Effects

Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 92, 235-253, 2009
Abstract
A high-order closed-form solution for the specific absorption rate (SAR) distribution induced inside a plane geometry fatmuscle tissue by a shortwave diathermy induction coil is presented. The solution is derived starting from the complete integral expressions for the electromagnetic field components generated by a currentcarrying circular loop located horizontally above a stratified earth. It is valid in a wide frequency range, and is flexible to any multi-turn coil configuration. The spatial distribution of the SAR induced in the muscle tissue by a flat round coil is computed by using the proposed formulation, the zero-order quasi-static one, and the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method. Excellent agreement is demonstrated to exist between the results provided by the new approach and those achieved through FDTD simulations. On the contrary, the performed computations show that the zero-order solution leads to over-estimate the SAR. The performances of the round and figure-eight coil geometries are compared. Despite of what has been argued in previously published papers, it turns out that the figure-eight coil is less energetically efficient than the round one. The work in the present paper is an extension of a previous work.
