Distance between exposed object and exposure source
The rabbits were placed in a wooden squeeze box on a polystyrene block and exposed dorsally or ventrally with their body axis parallel to the E-field. The horn antenna was either above or below the location of the heart.
After the tests, one euthanized rabbit was placed in the squeeze box and exposed to high CWfield strengths for a short time in order to record SAR patterns of the sagittal plane by a thermographic camera [Guy, 1971]. Obtained values were extrapolated for a power density of 5 mW/cm².
