Hyperfine, Inc. Celebrates Breadth of Swoop® System Data Presented at the 2024 International Stroke Conference and Provides an Update on Enrollment in ACTION PMR Stroke Observational Study

Innovative approaches in MRI technology demonstrate the potential of portable ultra-low-field MR brain imaging to aid physicians in the diagnosis of acute ischemic stroke

GUILFORD, Conn. – February 1, 2024 – Hyperfine, Inc. (Nasdaq: HYPR), the groundbreaking health technology company that has redefined brain imaging with the world’s first FDA-cleared portable magnetic resonance (MR) brain imaging system—the Swoop® system—today announced that four abstracts highlighting ultra-low-field imaging data will be presented at the 2024 International Stroke Conference (ISC), held from February 7–9 in Phoenix. These abstracts demonstrate the depth and breadth of research into the clinical utility and applications of portable ultra-low-field MR imaging.

Maria Sainz, Hyperfine, Inc. president and CEO, said, “Acute ischemic stroke remains a large and growing global health issue. More timely diagnosis and treatment are key to addressing stroke. Evaluating the opportunity for the Swoop® system to contribute to better stroke care remains incredibly compelling for our company. The peer-reviewed abstracts at this year's conference highlight the advancements in portable, ultra-low-field MR brain imaging and underscore the potential of the Swoop® system in transforming the diagnosis and treatment of acute ischemic stroke.”

Additionally, investigators of the prospective, international, multi-site ACTION PMR (Acute Ischemic Stroke Detection with Portable MR) study, which aims to examine the integration of brain imaging with the Swoop® system into the stroke diagnosis and treatment workflow, are announcing an update on enrollment. Taylor Kimberly, MD, PhD, of Massachusetts General Hospital, the study’s principal investigator, commented on the study’s progress, “Over 70 patients across four sites have been enrolled since the study’s launch in July 2023. We look forward to determining how ultra-low-field MR imaging can help clinicians detect strokes and identify viable brain tissue that can be saved.”

About Hyperfine, Inc. and the Swoop® Portable MR Imaging® System

Hyperfine, Inc. (Nasdaq: HYPR) is the groundbreaking health technology company that has redefined brain imaging with the Swoop® system—the world’s first FDA-cleared, portable, ultra-low-field, magnetic resonance brain imaging system capable of providing imaging at multiple points of care. The Swoop® system received initial U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance in 2020 as a portable, ultra-low-field magnetic resonance brain imaging device for producing images that display the internal structure of the head where a 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 has been approved for brain imaging in several countries, including Canada and Australia, has UKCA certification in the United Kingdom, CE certification in the European Union, and is also available in New Zealand.

The mission of Hyperfine, Inc. is to revolutionize patient care globally through transformational, 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 out of a passion for redefining brain imaging methodology and how clinicians can apply accessible diagnostic imaging to patient care. Traditionally, access to costly, stationary, conventional MRI technology can be inconvenient or not available when needed most. With the portable, ultra-low-field Swoop® system, Hyperfine, Inc. is redefining the neuroimaging workflow by bringing brain imaging to the patient’s bedside. For more information, visit
