determine the RF-induced heating of implants, it is necessary, that the RF
field source used for testing fulfills several requirements. This study
introduced the validation of a new developed linear exposure system for testing.
The results for E-Field distributions from numerical simulations are validated experimentally by measuring these E-field distributions. Furthermore, the temperature rise at the 100mm titanium rod is compared with the target values form ISO/TS 10974 Annex I.
The system fulfills the requirements and is suitable for testing active and passive implants for RF-induced heating according to ASTM F2182 and ISO/TS 10974.
