Claron Introduces Easy Multi-Site Image Sharing With NilFeed

June 4, 2012 Claron Technology introduces NilFeed, an image sharing extension for its family of Nil medical image viewers that enables easy, flexible communications among unrelated sites. Nil viewers, which include both diagnostic and referring physician offerings, run within a browser on any Web-enabled device. Using NilFeed, a Nil site can now collaborate easily and securely with any external medical facility, whatever its imaging infrastructure, without setting up and maintaining a dedicated VPN connection. A remote site can upload or download a DICOM study 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 easily pushed to Nil from any PACS.  NilFeed also supports importing a DICOM file through Windows’ regular drag and drop mechanism. Once imaging data has been received by NilFeed, it is automatically uploaded to the Nil archive and made available to Nil users.

John Wallace, system manager for Vanderbilt Imaging Informatics, comments, “At VUMC, NilFeed is under clinical evaluation to enable our trauma specialists with the ability to assess potential community hospital transfer cases by uploading remote patient images.  Previously, this type of image communication was accomplished with a dedicated VPN connection to our Access Center, but the approach was not scalable and was costly. NilFeed, used in conjunction with our on-site, virtualized Nil server, has already demonstrated the potential to significantly improve this critical trauma scenario. Our specialists are notified when a study has been uploaded, and they can quickly make an informed assessment based on the relevant images. They especially like the ability to interact with the referring doctor in a live, collaborative fashion before a transfer decision is made. NilFeed performs the live collaboration perfectly. The Claron engineers have been extremely easy to work with, and their dedication to developing NilFeed to meet our specific needs here at Vanderbilt has been excellent.”

“Working with VUMC, we discovered several other clinical scenarios where NilFeed proved extremely useful,” says Claudio Gatti, co-founder and co-CEO of Claron. “For example, it allows distributed research groups to collaborate on a clinical trial without shipping physical media. Using NilFeed, data can be easily uploaded and downloaded from a selected principal trial archive with minimal IT setup.  NilFeed also enables direct site to site image sharing without storage of sensitive clinical data on a third party cloud system, allowing an institution to remain in full control of its HIPAA-compliance status.”

NilFeed can also append non-DICOM images and PDF reports to any existing DICOM study, allowing data sharing from a variety of different imaging systems.  In addition to PDF, most popular image formats are also supported, including JPEG, GIF, TIFF and PNG.

Claron’s NilFeed is the latest addition to the growing Nil family. Nil viewers are a Web-based software solution that allows clinicians to securely visualize imaging studies anywhere a Web browser is available with no application download. It is compatible with Windows, Apple, Linux, iPad, iPhone, Android and Blackberry. Nil apps for the major mobile ecosystems are also available. Nil supports viewing from both local and cloud-based archives, allowing ease of access and high performance. Since its introduction at RSNA 2010, Nil has been integrated with the technologies of a growing number of partners in various imaging markets, including radiology, eyecare and pathology. NilFeed will be on display at Claron booth 410 at SIIM 2012.
