Hyperfine Inc., creators of the world’s first portable compact magnetic resonance imaging device, has named medical device industry veteran Dave Scott as its president and chief executive officer to support the company’s commercialization and growth strategy.
Scott joins Hyperfine with a 25-year career building and leading high-performing teams at both startups and Fortune 500 companies related to digital surgery, digital health ecosystems, surgical robotics and medical imaging and diagnostics. He has a passion for disruptive innovations and has built and successfully scaled four startup companies to commercialization. As CEO, Scott will lead the company’s bold strategic growth plans for the rapid commercialization and adoption of the category-defining Swoop MR Imaging System.
“Throughout his career, Dave has taken concepts previously considered improbable or even impossible – much like putting MRI on wheels – and made them real,” commented company founder Dr. Jonathan Rothberg. “I have no doubt that his visionary way of thinking and doing will help us achieve our giant vision for the future of Hyperfine.”
“The possibility and potential that Hyperfine’s Swoop presents to truly change the landscape of healthcare for the world’s caregivers and their patients is an awe-inspiring opportunity,” commented Scott. “Building off the success that this innovative team has already achieved, I look forward to helping Hyperfine make its mark on the world.”
Scott has been awarded over 25 patents in X-ray imaging, medical endoscopy and laser surgery applications. He serves on the board of directors at the Alfred Mann Foundation and holds a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Kansas and a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
