December 12, 2013 — The American College of Radiology (ACR) selected Claron’s NilRead zero-footprint diagnostic viewer for the communication of images and related data to support several new research and educational programs.  Newly FDA-cleared Claron NilRead enables fast viewing of a full range of DICOM and non-DICOM modalities in diagnostic quality with no software download or detrimental impact on performance. 
“We were impressed with Nil because of its versatility and ease of use,” said Mike Tilkin, chief information officer, ACR.
Tilkin noted that the ACR will use Nil to provide remote access to images for several new projects, including teaching files for participants in some of its continuing medical education (CME) courses and in support of some of ACR’s clinical research activities. The Nil system has been integrated into several of the ACR’s workflow systems, allowing authorized users of those systems to access streamed data via web browsers and other remote devices. Nil offers a broad range of image manipulation tools and such advanced visualization features as thin/thick slabs, MIP, volume rendering, positron emissions tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) fusion and more. Powerful server-side processing reformats images immediately.
Other Nil features include customizable hanging protocols, prior-current comparison and extensive measurements. Nil also supports the full XDS IHE profile, including comprehensive HL7 CDA documents.
“We have a growing need to provide web-based access to images, and we anticipate using Nil as one of the remote access options for several new activities,” said Tilkin. “It offers many of the advanced features offered in a traditional local PACS [picture archiving and communication system] viewer with the benefits of web-based image access.”
The Nil family of zero-footprint viewers includes NilRead for diagnostic viewing and NilShare for non-diagnostic use.
