ECG electrodes or surface imaging coils) have come into contact with skin, are well recorded. Radiofrequency fields Energy is absorbed by the stimulation of protons and is largely dissipated as heat. Radiofrequency (RF) energy also induces GENERAL NOTES voltages similar to the time-varying field. These voltages are oscillating, and currents thus produced are not capable of inducing depolarization but are capable of producing heat through resistive losses. Energy deposited in this way is calculated in terms of the specific absorption rate (SAR) measured in Watts per kilogram ( W / k g ) .
