Claron Showcases Nil Zero-Footprint Universal Mammography Viewer at ECR

Software allows diagnostic viewing of full field digital mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis across multiple platforms

March 11, 2015 — Claron Technology showcased its NilRead universal zero-footprint diagnostic viewer for mammography applications at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in March. 

NilRead has regulatory clearances in Canada and in the EU, and Claron has also submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for NilRead mammography clearance.

NilRead universal viewer supports anywhere, anytime viewing of diagnostic mammography images on a high-resolution monitor. Support includes both full field digital mammography studies and digital breast tomosynthesis. It enables radiologists to easily confer on cases, compare prior exams from any institution with current images and evaluate mammograms remotely anywhere worldwide.

Like other viewers in the Nil family, the mammography viewer runs from a remote location with server-side rendering, eliminating the need to transfer ultra-large mammography files locally for image manipulation. This makes it particularly appropriate for telemammography. 

Nil enterprise viewers also allow accessing of images through an electronic health record (EHR) or other cross-department, unified patient record.

NilRead is a full-featured viewer designed to enable diagnostic reading anywhere, anytime on any device — tablets, smartphones, laptops or desktops. The software supports diagnostic viewing of all Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) imaging modalities on single- or multi-monitor configurations. The viewer includes support for customizable hanging protocols, prior-current comparison, extensive measurements, and advanced visualization features such as thin/thick slabs, MIP, volume rendering and positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) fusion.

Complementing this is NilShare for viewing clinical images and interactive reports for real-time consultations and collaboration. Both viewers support a full range of images in addition to DICOM, including jpeg, tiff and pdf, as well as reports.

The Nil viewer family is optimized for streaming integration with remote archives, including picture archive and communication systems (PACS) and vendor neutral archives (VNA), without caching data.

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. Nil server-side software requires no special graphics hardware, allowing it to be easily virtualized and run in a cloud environment.
