Claron Debuts Nil App for BlackBerry PlayBook, Provides Anywhere, Anytime Medical Image Viewing

June 15, 2012 — Claron Technology introduces at Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2012 the BlackBerry PlayBook app for the Nil family of medical imaging viewers, which support anytime, anywhere web-based review of a full range of imaging modalities and related data. The Claron Nil viewers include both NilRead for diagnostic applications and NilShare for referring physician and other non-diagnostic users.

The Nil app for the BlackBerry PlayBook provides one-click, ultra-fast access to the innovative image viewer running either on Claron’s NilCloud or a medical facility’s dedicated Nil server. The new app complements Claron’s zero-footprint Nil web viewer accessible on any desktop, tablet or smartphone. The new app is now available for the PlayBook for free on BlackBerry App World.

Innovative Nil technology provides authorized users sophisticated exam viewing and manipulation capabilities, including 2-D, multi-planar reformatting (MPR), 3-D and even echocardiology with full cine. It allows comprehensive image manipulation with window/level, zoom, pan, rotate and more in either single or multiple window layouts.

Nil allows medical facilities to securely distribute images and reports outside their network without maintaining a dedicated complex IT infrastructure. It is also a versatile, flexible and easy-to-use tool for image viewing on any mobile device, providing medical facilities with an ideal complement to their existing PACS solution.

Users access images from either cloud-based storage or by logging into their local Nil server. Nil web technology is compatible with all major desktop OS, and also includes dedicated apps for all the major smartphone ecosystems. Nil uses highly optimized client-server communication to remain highly responsive even over limited bandwidth and high latency connections, such as cellular 3G.
