Loop antenna arrays are the major components for
reception in magnetic resonance imaging systems.
Typically 3D full wave field calculation software is
used for calculation of the corresponding s-Parameters
and field distribution of these loop antennas. In the
following paper different simulation methods are
compared, including various meshing techniques in time
and frequency domain simulations, regarding their
suitability of accurately calculating a more complex
