This study investigated the relationship between temperature elevation and spatial average SAR (specific absorption rate) in a Japanese head model due to a dipole antenna. Much attention is paid to the effect of averaging mass on the relationship. As a main result, SAR averaged over 10 g of tissue was better than that of 1 g for correlating with temperature elevation. The rationale for this was explained in terms of Green's function for the bioheat equation.
