In silico study of mouse glioma animal model under 7T MRI conditions. Includes analysis of electric field intensities (E), currents (J), and specific energy absorption (SAR) in normal, brain and tumor tissue. FDTD simulations show that glioma tumors have distinct dielectric properties that confer significant variations in electromagnetic response. This study is relevant to preclinical MR method scenarios leading to clinical translation.
