Using our recently implemented parallel finite-difference time-domain computation system on Linux-based personal computers, we investigated the human-body effect on the peak specific absorption rate (SAR) in the human head for portable telephones. Taking into account the whole human body, we found that there was a difference within 5.3% for the 1- and 10-g averaged spatial peak SARs and a difference within 19% for the SAR in the brain and eyes compared to the isolated head model. Moreover, in most realistic-use positions, we found that the SAR was slightly decreased due to the body effect. These results further support the rationale of using an isolated human-head model in the SAR evaluation for portable telephones.
