In this work, we have researched the possibility of using a conductive plastic that is suitable for the design of an anthropomorphic phantom for MR testing purposes. DSM SomosĀ® provides a clear hydrophobic SLA resin that has conductivity similar to the averaged electromagnetic properties of the fat, bone, and skin. The work of Wood et al.1 highlighted these findings. To further examine the electrically conductive plastic SLA resin material, we performed temperature testing on areas of the plastic material where we estimated temperature rise at 7T imaging.
