In this paper, a lowpass birdcage coil designed to operate at 64 MHz is simulated to show B fields in both unloaded and loaded conditions.  When loaded with a heterogeneous human head model, the temperature rise caused by exposure to the fields of the coil is computed using XFdtd’s biological thermal sensor.
