Claron Debuts Enhancements to Nil Zero-Footprint Viewers

Web-Based Image Viewers With Skype Integration

At RSNA 2012, Claron will debut a range of enhancements to its family of Nil zero-footprint Web-based image viewers.

Claron Technology offers software for advanced visualization and analysis of medical images. It will debuts enhancements that transform its family of Nil (No Install) cloud-based viewers into robust enterprise-class image visualization and sharing tools.  Nil viewers include NilRead, a diagnostic quality zero-footprint Web-based viewer, and NilShare, a streamlined viewer for clinicians and patients.

New for NilRead at RSNA 2012 is support for viewing federated historical patient exams across multiple PACS archives, vendor neutral archives (VNAs) and  health information exchanges  (HIEs).  With NilRead, radiologists now can view a patient’s full exam history in diagnostic quality anytime, anywhere, on any device--whether on a dedicated reading station, a computer anywhere in the hospital, or a tablet or smartphone in a conference room.  The newest version of NilRead also supports rules-based hanging protocols so that exams will always be displayed according to a physician’s preferences.  At RSNA, NilRead also becomes the first zero-footprint Web viewer to support multi-monitor image display.

New Skype integration of both viewers for voice, data and instant messaging adds to its impact as an important collaborative tool.  This collaboration is further enabled by the existing NilFeed image sharing extension that allows remote sites to upload or download DICOM studies from a Nil server using only secure HTTPS protocol.  NilFeed is recognized by a DICOM network as a service class provider, enabling images to be pushed to Nil from any DICOM source.  Once NilFeed receives the data, it is automatically uploaded to the Nil archive and made available to selected Nil users. Non-DICOM images can be also easily attached to existing DICOM studies or supplied with their own demographics.

NilRead and NilShare 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 even over connections with limited bandwidth and high latency, such as cellular 3G. 

NilShare was introduced in 2010 and was rapidly adopted by a number of U.S. modality and PACS vendors.  NilRead is currently under FDA review for Class II 510k approval.
