The commenter asserts that it would be dangerous to take computed local values of specific absorption rate (SAR) seriously and use them as a basis for patient treatment, as suggested by J.-Y. Chen and O.P. Gandhi (ibid., vol.39, p.209-16, Mar. 1992) in the above-titled paper. He lists 11 reasons that support his assertion. The authors refute the commenter's claims, based on his use of simple models and whole-body SAR or average SAR in large regions of the body.<>
