Undesired common-mode currents traveling along the shield of cabling can affect radiofrequency coil performance and cause patient burns. Cable traps are necessary to suppress these common-mode currents in Magnetic Resonance environments. Floating cable traps, which allow for repositioning and reuse and eliminate the need to solder directly to cabling, have previously been reported as custom-manufactured apparatuses1. To streamline the manufacturing of floating cable traps and reduce manufacturing cost, we have designed 3D-printable versions that only require the addition of copper circuitry (e.g., tape/PCB) and lumped elements.
