In several countries, epidemiological studies are being planned, or are in progress, to test the hypothesis that a causal relation exists between exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic fields and cancer incidence.
One of the major difficulties in these studies is the development of valid and efficient protocols to assess magnetic field exposure.
In studies focusing on residential magnetic fields, many researchers are turning to recently developed sstationary automated magnetic field monitors to characterize exposure.
We argue that a relatively small number of manually collected « spot » measurements may be an adequate alternative which has several advantages.
