Clinical Research Using Swoop® System for Alzheimer's Disease Monitoring to be Presented at the 2024 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference

Jun 25, 2024

Portable ultra-low-field MR brain imaging provides affordable and accessible technology that may help physicians monitor ARIA and Alzheimer's disease progression in diverse professional care settings.

GUILFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 25, 2024-- Hyperfine, Inc. (Nasdaq: HYPR), the groundbreaking health technology company that has redefined brain imaging with the first FDA-cleared portable magnetic resonance (MR) brain imaging system—the Swoop® system—today announced that two presentations on the clinical utility of portable ultra-low-field MRI for Alzheimer's disease monitoring have been accepted in the developing topics poster sessions at the upcoming 2024 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference, July 28–August 1 in Philadelphia.

These presentations, submitted by clinicians from Washington University in St. Louis, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Yale University, highlight promising applications of portable ultra-low-field MR imaging within the Alzheimer's care continuum.

Authors: Jude-Patrick Nnamdi Okafor, MD, et al.

Title: Portable, Low-field MRI for Alzheimer’s Disease
Authors: W. Taylor Kimberly MD PhD, et al.

“With the recent developments in Alzheimer’s therapies and care, the medical community has shown tremendous interest in incorporating portable ultra-low-field MR brain imaging into the continuum of care for Alzheimer’s patients, taking advantage of the system’s versatility to scan in diverse professional care settings. We are very excited to be attending the AAIC conference for the first time this year in Philadelphia,” said Maria Sainz, President and CEO of Hyperfine, Inc.

Hyperfine, Inc. is committed to delivering clinical value across the continuum of care for patients suffering from some of the most devastating neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and reducing the complexity of the treatment and care management cycle many patients face. Earlier this year, the company announced that the first patients had been scanned in the CARE PMR (Capturing ARIA Risk Equitably with Portable MR) study. The observational study assesses the clinical utility and workflow benefits of acquiring the Swoop® system images at infusion centers and clinics to help physicians detect amyloid-related imaging abnormalities (ARIA) in Alzheimer’s patients receiving amyloid-targeting therapy.

About the Swoop® Portable MR Imaging® System

The Swoop® Portable MR Imaging® system is U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared for brain imaging of patients of all ages. It is a portable, ultra-low-field magnetic resonance imaging device for producing images that display the internal structure of the head where full diagnostic examination is not clinically practical. When interpreted by a trained physician, these images provide information that can be useful in determining a diagnosis. The Swoop® system also has CE certification in the European Union and UKCA certification in the United Kingdom. The Swoop® system is commercially available in a select number of international markets.
