Electromagnetic modeling of large scale problems arising from complex geometries, such as the human body or the specific organ, is generally undertaken by numerical methods implemented in simulation software packages. The structures involving high discretization density (mainly based on MRI images and handled by FDTD method) consume tremendously high computational cost. On the other hand, oversimplified numerical models may result in significantly less accuracy. The aim of this work was to investigate how detailed numerical model could be created using standard personal computer. Two rather complex cases of exposure were analyzed: human eye and pregnant woman exposed to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation. The SAR distribution, peak localized 10g-averaged SAR and volume-averaged SAR in these models were determined using FEKO software and the results were compared to those available in literature.
