Adding decoy filars and non-therapeutic decoy electrodes to therapeutic filars can divert and dissipate a significant fraction of captured RF energy in a distributed way along the lead. Simulated worst case local SAR values have been reduced by a factor of ten for lead lengths ranging from 200 mm to 1200 mm.
