We present a protocol for measurement of SNR profile of 13C RF coils for clinical imaging systems. This protocol makes use of standard, vendor-provided pulse sequences as well as the natural abundance 13CH3 resonance of the dimethyl silicone (DMS) phantoms which are widely distributed. We also provide an open source code for processing and analysis.
