We built a phantom which exhibits significant localized heating and provides good conditions for measuring temperature rise with MR thermometry and/or using fiber optic temperature probes. Measurements with this phantom allow for local SAR validation for RF coil models, a necessary step prior to relying on SAR simulations for in-vivo safety decisions.
