To reduce labor costs new methods in MR coil development need to be introduced in the design phase. Electromagnetic field simulation software is a promising tool to accomplish the task. In this work, an EM-software was evaluated and compared with measurement results. For implementation as a new design tool, the software is optimized to match network measurements. In order to achieve reproducible results an experiment is designed to incorporate the settings match simulation and measurement.
