comparison study has been implemented for a generic orthopedic implant (GOI) in ASTM and Elliptical phantom as well as in homogeneous and heterogeneous Duke model in terms of RF induced heating to evaluate the uncertainty of RF induced heating tests in phantoms. The parameters to be evaluated to track the hotspots at the surrounding tissue of the GOI were assessed.
