The field of photography offers medical imaging an insight.

Question: What’s the best camera in the world?
Photographer’s answer: The one in my hand.

The advent of portable, point-of-care MR imaging forces full reconsideration of diagnostic and patient management possibilities much like portable X-ray and point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) before it. The mental calculus of resources versus patient management has been rebalanced, giving clinicians routine, practical, frontline access to the sensitivity and specificity of MR soft tissue imaging.

Today, all patients are within MR imaging’s reach.


Having Swoop™ parked nearby means your team has the information they need immediately, without the risk or time required for transport.

When minutes — seconds, even — affect the clinical team’s ability to determine the proper pathway of care, there isn’t time to wait for patient transport. With Swoop™, you can maneuver right to the patient’s bedside, plug into a standard wall outlet, and start evaluating scans in less than 2 minutes.For patients who need ongoing monitoring, Swoop™ can stay next to the patient’s side and provide serial imaging. And with its unique design and low-field magnet, frightened loved ones stay close by.

Use Swoop™ for diagnosis and management of conditions related to:

  • Acute Stroke
  • Wake-Up Stroke
  • Cranial Neuropathy
  • Headache
  • Stroke Recovery
  • Blurred Vision
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness

Many Emergency Departments lack an in-house MRI or may be located notably far from a hospital’s Radiology Department.

Swoop™ can reduce patient wait times and provide frontline healthcare staff with an immediate, on-site, and on-demand imaging option to assess a variety of conditions and make informed and timely decisions in care management.

In the ED, Swoop™ can be useful in diagnosing conditions related to:

  • Acute Stroke
  • Blurred Vision
  • Cranial Neuropathy
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Head Injury
  • Idiopathic Neurological Complaints
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Vertigo
  • Wake-up Stroke
  • Weakness

Swoop™ gives the clinical care team the capability to perform MR imaging at the patient’s bedside, whenever a scan is needed.

This eliminates the need to transport critically ill patients to Radiology and reduces the time needed to coordinate clinical schedules and the staff to support transport. In addition, Swoop™ can be used to serially monitor a patient’s condition on-demand at a moment’s notice, providing clinicians with real-time information to assist in care management decisions.

In the Neurointensive Care Unit, Swoop™ can be useful in diagnosing conditions related to:

  • Acute Mental Status Change
  • Ataxia
  • Cerebral Edema
  • Cerebrovascular Disease
  • Cranial Neuropathy
  • Ventriculostomy Assessment
  • Follow-up Intracranial Hemorrhage
  • Follow-up Ischemic Stroke
  • Follow-up Hematoma
  • Tumor Pre- and Post-Op
  • Wake-up Stroke

Swoop’s friendly design and form-factor is naturally applicable to neonatal, pediatric, and adolescent imaging, where a family member can be present during a scan, within visual contact of the patient.

Further, ready access to Swoop™ permits serial imaging of young patients, using the system more like a monitor to track changes in condition or recovery over time.

In a Pediatric Unit, Swoop™ can be useful in diagnosing conditions related to:

  • Acute Mental Status Change
  • Head Injury After Fall
  • Stroke Recovery
  • Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Sports Injury
  • Suspected Abuse
  • Volumetrics

Placing Swoop™ in a rural or critical access hospital is both affordable and mission-critical.

Swoop™ at the bedside in a CAH allows the patient to remain local while capturing and communicating vital images to remote specialists and care teams in an affiliated urban hospital. Good for the patient who wishes to stay in his/her hometown with loved ones. Good for the hospital to retain patients locally for care and monitoring. Good for treatment planning, allowing images to be captured singularly or serially in support of the care pathway.
