We propose to use the advantages of the multi-level dual-grid finite-difference time-domain (DG-FDTD) method to determine, in a short computation time, the transmission between an antenna implanted in a simplified homogeneous body model and a half-wavelength dipole (at 402 MHz) located in free space. The transmission coefficient is determined for four different positions of the body.
