A method is proposed that combines full wave simulations and the transfer matrix method to efficiently calculate the image of an object placed behind an imaging system containing metamaterial slabs with respect to the angle of observation. The dispersion relations of periodic metamaterial slabs are retrieved from the S parameters calculated with full wave simulation of the unit cell. The dispersion relation is then utilized in the transfer matrix method to calculate the imaging properties of the metamaterial slab. The developed procedure is applied to obtain the virtual distance of a point source placed behind a Fishnet metamaterial slab as a function of the observation angle. If the image distance is known for all observation angles, the image of an extended object can be simply calculated.
