December 23, 2014 — Claron Technology debuted Nil 4.0 and its Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS) 3.0 diagnostic viewer at the 2014 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting. The zero-footprint viewer’s server-side rendering architecture transforms distributed radiology workflow by eliminating or minimizing digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) data pre-fetch and transfers. Other features include native interface for the most popular vendor neutral archives (VNAs) and integration with universal worklists. Nil 4.0 is optimized to support efficient, personalized workflow through highly customizable keyboard, mouse and touch device shortcuts and hanging protocols.

Another major enhancement in Nil 4.0 is advanced visualization capabilities. These include Claron’s automated vessel analysis package (for investigational use only), which for the first time harnesses the power of advanced post-processing in a zero-footprint solution. The engine automatically separates vessels from bones in computed tomography (CT) angiography studies while identifying and naming specific vessels. The analysis includes both vessel lumens, thrombus areas and calcification, which can be individually enabled in the visualization.

Nil viewers can be integrated into any DICOM network and are available as turn-key systems for hospitals, imaging groups or radiology practices. Nil uses highly optimized client-server communication to remain responsive over different types of connections.

Claron also introduced NilHub, which allows deployment, maintenance and remote monitoring of a large number of Nil servers.
