New Study Uses Hyperfine, Inc.’s Wearable MRI System to Monitor Brain Injuries and Assess Physiological Effects

GUILFORD, Conn., Feb. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hyperfine, Inc. (Nasdaq: HYPR), the pioneering medical device company that invented the Swoop® System, the world’s first FDA-cleared wearable MRI system, today announced the presentation of new data using the Swoop® Stroke patient follow-up system at the 2023 International Stroke Conference (ISC) in Dallas, Texas. In this study, conducted at Yale-New Haven Hospital between December 2021 and August 2022, researchers performed bedside portable magnetic resonance imaging (pMRI) scans in a standard non-magnetically shielded interventional radiology suite following mechanical thrombectomy procedures in the presence of clinical and research staff . Mechanical thrombectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that removes a clot from the brain when a patient has had an acute ischemic stroke.

In the presentation titled Portable low-field MRI for routine Post thrombectomy assessment of persistent brain injury, Researchers found that ultra-low-field pMRI can facilitate a post-treatment baseline for post-thrombectomy stroke patients to assess the impact of potential changes in blood pressure and heart rate that may impact sustained brain injury. These findings are significant because brain imaging is not routinely available, particularly with conventional magnetic resonance imaging after mechanical thrombectomy. The lack of postmechanical thrombectomy imaging may preclude accurate infarct assessment1.

“We believe these observations set the stage for the use of handheld MRI in the dynamic acute stroke intervention setting, where patients are at high risk of injury,” said Dr. Kevin Sheth, professor of neurology and neurosurgery at the Yale School of Medicine of lead investigators.

“The data presented by the Yale team at ISC shows that the swoop® System provides diagnostic images and fills a critical gap where traditional imaging methods are unavailable,” said Maria Sainz, President and CEO of Hyperfine, Inc., who also attended the ISC meeting. “We’re excited about the work we’re doing to harness the power of stroke with the Swoop® system and even more encouraged by the progress we have made in image quality since the Yale data was collected.”

About Hyperfineinc and the swoop® Portable MR imaging® system
Hyperfine, Inc. (NASDAQ: HYPR) is the pioneering medical device company that invented the swoop® System, the world’s first FDA-cleared handheld magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system capable of delivering neuroimaging at the point-of-care. The swoop® System received the first US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 2020 as a bedside magnetic resonance imaging device to create images that show the internal structure of the head when a full diagnostic evaluation is clinically impractical. When interpreted by a trained physician, these images provide information that can be useful in determining a diagnosis. The swoop® The system has been approved for brain imaging in several countries including Canada and Australia, is UKCA certified in the UK and is also available in New Zealand and Pakistan. Hyperfine, Inc.’s mission is to revolutionize patient care worldwide through transformative, accessible, clinically relevant diagnostic imaging and data solutions. Founded by dr. Jonathan Rothberg in a technology-based incubator called 4Catalyzer, Hyperfine, Inc., scientists, engineers and physicists developed the Swoop® System passionate about redefining brain imaging methodology and how clinicians can apply accessible diagnostic imaging to patient care. Traditionally, access to expensive, stationary, conventional MRI technology can be inconvenient or unavailable when it is needed most. Featuring the portable ultra low field swoop® System, Hyperfine, Inc. is redefining neuroimaging workflow by bringing brain imaging to the patient’s bedside. Visit for more information.
