Dear Sim4Life community,
I am trying to build a model that consists of a human liver, a tumor and a monopolar electrode that consists of an insulator and the electrode, both set up by me, meaning that their properties were the default. The main problem is that in the end, the SAR is extremely low (10^-6) and I am trying to understand what the problem is. In the model tab, I assigned the materials to the ones I need for this project (electrodes made of platinium and insulator from polyethylene) so that I will be able to have the electrode in the boundary conditions (25V, Dirichlet) and also with the right electrical properties. Otherwise it doesn't let me run the simulation. Also, I set up the grid like the one in the tutorial (bipolar RFA) and the voxels with priority 1 for the tumor and 2 for the electrode. After the simulation, I select Slice Viewer for both E-Field and SAR, but my results are way off the ones expected. Any ideas what I can change in order to increase the SAR?
Thank you in advance.
