Wireless Worries

With the help of the TACC's supercomputing power, researchers at the University of Texas explore the health risks of wireless devices through virtual body models and advanced algorithms. The danger of cell phones and other mobile devices has been explored for many years, but the tests used to measure their electromagnetic radiation output are inadequate. Ali Yilmaz, Ph.D., and his team of students and anatomists have created high resolution computer simulations of tissue, bone, and blood vessels that they're using to test how heat from mobile devices travels through and is absorbed by our bodies.
