German term or phrase: abgeleitet
Da SAR-Werte nur mit-tels eines aufwändigen Messverfahrens mit Hilfe von Phantomen bestimmt wer-den kann, verwendet man in vielen Fällen abgeleitete, gut messbare physikali-sche Größen, die elektrische und die magnetischen Feldstärke.

I guess the maths term to differentiate, but would that mean I use "differentiated"? or would "derived" also be acceptable?

Explanation:
"Differentiate" has nothing to do with it here and would be wrong. Electric and magnetic field strength are derived quantities (their units being V/m and A/m, respectively).
