|Scanning can introduce strange, unseen artifacts. Making corrections is part of the process.|
That's why I recommend using a full-featured music scanning program, rather than the "lite" version that comes packaged with Finale (2014.5 and older.) Corrections are often easier there.
In your example, it's easy to see that some barlines were not picked up by the scan. You will need to use the time signature tool to correctly "rebreak" those measures. The split measure is a special case. Sometimes, the easiest way to fix things is to delete the notes (sometimes, even a couple of measures) and reenter them. Then, use the split measure plugin to reformat.
The more you know about scanning and corrections, the better off you are. While it is a great way to get (most of) the notes into Finale, you have to know when to cut your losses and just enter the notes. But don't believe the people who will tell you that scanning is worthless!

Already in Finale.
If you do a lot of scanning, consider SmartScore Pro. As a Finale owner, you can get it for half price, about $200. It's another program to learn, but it really does make the corrections easier and more efficient. I believe they have a 30-day trial.
It is designed to work with a Finale but also supports MusicXML 3. Unlike the "Lite" version, it supports lyrics and a much greater range of expressions.
The down side is that the instructions are way out of date. Ignore the nonsense about TWAIN drivers (not supported since OS 10.5) and HP all-in-ones. On the Mac, use Image Capture and you'll be fine.
