The paper presents the human exposure assessment to Extremely Low Frequency fields (ELF) by means of the three dimensional Boundary Element Method (BEM). The formulation is based on a rather realistic representation of the human body. The paper analizes the response of the density current due to variations on the detail of the conceptual model considered. Variations on the geometry model and the inclusion of organs have been considered. The results obtained with and without considering the rough representations of the internal organs were compared. This comparison allows to estimate their relevance in numerical modellings at ELF.
