“Our mission is to democratize healthcare by making medical imaging accessible to everyone around the world.” – Jonathan Rothberg, Founder

Hyperfine is a mission in the form of a company. Our singular aim is to maximize access to MRI.

We believe that more patients and more providers are served when MR imaging is accessible, at the ready, and free from the walls (literal and figurative) that have surrounded MRI since its introduction over 40 years ago.

Hyperfine’s Founding Goals

1. We will make MR imaging portable

2. We will make MR imaging affordable

Product Roadmap

Today Hyperfine Swoop™ is US FDA-cleared for brain imaging of patients across all ages. But our vision of MR imaging accessibility extends beyond neuroimaging. While still in the works, our product development roadmap includes imaging of the







Cervical Spine

We also see a clear pathway to neonatal and pediatric spine imaging. Further down the road, vehicle-mounted designs will enable the system to be used aboard ambulances and vessels at sea.
