Hyperfine, Inc. Takes the Stage at ISMRM with Seventeen Abstracts Assessing the Potential of Using Swoop® System Images Across Multiple Care Settings and Clinical Conditions

Apr 23, 2024

Data on the company’s portable MR imaging system show it can acquire brain images at the point of care that may assist physicians with screening and monitoring for Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis biomarkers

GUILFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 23, 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 the acceptance of seventeen ultra-low-field MRI-related abstracts that will be presented at the 2024 International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) annual meeting, being held from May 4–9 in Singapore. These seventeen abstracts span a wide variety of use cases, including two that highlight the utility of brain images acquired with the ultra-low-field Swoop® Portable MR Imaging® system to aid physicians screening for various biomarkers and monitoring disease progression unique to neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis (MS).

“These abstracts are very encouraging. The scientific and clinical data supports the potential of portable ultra-low-field MR imaging to assist physicians screening for and monitoring neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and MS,” said Maria Sainz, President and CEO of Hyperfine, Inc. “The data shows that ultra-low-field Swoop® system images can effectively help physicians track a patient’s disease progression and highlights the transformative and vast opportunity that fits the unique characteristics of our portable imaging system, which can be readily available across healthcare and resource settings.”

Hyperfine, Inc. is committed to delivering clinical value across the continuum of care for patients suffering from some of the largest and most devastating neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and MS and improving the complex treatment and care management cycle many patients face. Earlier this month, the company announced that the first patients have 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.
