Specific absorption rate (SAR) is sensitive to head motion, especially in parallel-transmit (pTx) due to channel interference. It is known that SAR distribution varies according to subject anatomy. Here, we investigate whether SAR sensitivity to motion also depends on the subject. We designed quadrature-mode and pTx pulses at a centred position and evaluated them at 29 displaced positions. We compared the motion-induced SAR change across 4 body-models. We observed some variation across models, but local-SAR at least doubled in all models’ worst-cases. Our findings suggest that the safety concerns surrounding motion effects on SAR are relevant for various populations.
