Nephrolithiasis is a process of stone formation in the kidney by crystallization. The increasing prevalence of nephrolithiasis from time to time had sought an alternative from the conventional imaging techniques that is invasive, radiative, and non-rapid usage. This paper enclosed a design simulation study of Magnetic Induction Tomography (MIT) system using COMSOL Multiphysics for renal imaging. MIT is a soft field tomography and non-contact imaging modality which can project the passive electromagnetic properties (conductivity, permittivity and permeability) under the principle of electromagnetic induction. In this research, 8 copper transreceiver coils were employed in the MIT system and fixed by the insulation belt. Meanwhile, geometric set-up of renal organ was set to imitate the transverse section of human renal. In the methodology, sensor performance analyses were done using frequency ranging from 50 kHz to 2 MHz of the MIT system on radii of calcium oxalate in renal. The sensor response and pattern are discussed in this paper.
