The ion Rapid Cycle Medical Synchrotron (iRCMS) * will provide proton and C ion bunches with maximum energy 270 MeV and 450 MeV/u respectively at a frequency of 15 Hz for treating cancerous tumors. One of the six cells of the iRCMS has been designed, built and magnetic field measurements have been performed. We will present results from the static and AC electromagnetic study of the iRCMS cell and compare the measured magnetic fields with those calculated using the OPERA computer code **. In addition the beam optics of the cell will be calculated based on the experimental fields using the zgoubi computer code *** and compared with the designed beam optics.
