Portable MRI technology developer Hyperfine is highlighting clinical results that suggest its Swoop Portable MRI system is effective for follow-up of stroke patients who have undergone thrombectomy.

The data comes from a study conducted between December 2021 and August 2022 at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut. A team of researchers performed bedside portable MRI exams in a standard, non-magnetically shielded interventional radiology suite after patients had undergone mechanical thrombectomy procedures, and found that ultralow-field portable MRI is effective for establishing a post-treatment baseline for post-thrombectomy stroke patients and for ongoing evaluation of the impact of changes in blood pressure and heart rate that may have resulted from brain injury.

"These findings are significant as brain imaging is not routinely available, particularly with conventional magnetic resonance imaging, following mechanical thrombectomy," Hyperfine said.
