This work proposes an approach to simulate the stent artifacts in MRI based on electromagnetic field analysis. Both static and RF field distributions with a sample stent in a uniform imaging sample are calculated using the commercial FEM software JMAG 10.0 (JRI Solution, Limited, Japan). The images with stent artifacts are simulated by an MRI simulator based on the calculated field distributions.
