Abstand zw. exponiertem Objekt und Expositionsquelle
The distance between the bottom of the horn antenna (mounted at the top of the anechoic chamber) and the top of the cages was 65 cm.
Animals were placed in Plexiglas containers divided into ten separate cages (6 cm x 6 cm x 17 cm long, arranged in two rows of five) keeping the animals parallel to the electric field, with their heads facing outwards most of the time.
Eine Scheinexposition wurde durchgeführt.
Rats were exposed or sham exposed from day 20, 40 or 75 after injection of benzo(a)pyrene. A group of six rats was kept as cage control.
Since the spread in SAR was mainly due to the cage position, rats were placed into the cages at random each day.
Mess- und Berechnungsdetails
The incident power was monitored using an isotropic probe. Whole-body SAR was first estimated using the plane-wave formula of Durney et al.  and then determined by monitoring the temperature rise under far-field exposure to 900 MHzCW using fibreoptic sensors inserted at three locations into a rat gel phantom.
