High-resolution heterogeneous human body models are used increasingly in field calculations for MRI engineering and safety assurance. In this study, we modified six currently available male and female models and adapt to commercial finite-difference time-domain software. Calculations show that the human body shape and position have big effect on SAR distribution.
