Human body phantom with electrical properties is widely used in electromagnetics solvers to model the lossy human tissue environment. The selection of the phantoms affects the computational efficiency and results accuracy. In this work, we evaluated four human head phantoms with an intracranial implantable antenna. Results of phantom complexity and antenna parameters are compared to provide the reference in phantom selection for implantable antenna development.
