November 2, 2011—Toronto—Claron Technology, a leading developer of software for advanced visualization and analysis of medical images, highlights major expansions and enhancements to its two major product families: Nil (No Install) and WIF (Withinsight Framework) at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference.
Claron adds to its Nil cloud-based exam viewer family with NilRead, a full-featured viewer designed to enable diagnostic reading anywhere, anytime and on any device -- tablets, smartphones, laptops or desktops. The viewer includes support for all modalities, customizable hanging protocols, prior-current comparison, extensive measurements, many advanced visualization features (thin/thick slabs, MIP, volume rendering, PET/CT fusion), secure email bookmarks and real time collaboration. The viewer complements existing viewer NilShare, which provides clinician and patient access to interactive reports and real-time consultations and collaboration. NilShare was introduced last year and was quickly licensed by a number of modality and PACS vendors.
NilShare and NilRead can be integrated in any DICOM network and are available as turn-key systems for hospitals, imaging groups or radiology practices. Claron plans to file a Class II 510k submission for NilRead with the FDA by the end of the year.
This RSNA, Claron will also debut release 2.0 of WIF, a rich collection of software building blocks for accelerating the development of a wide range of medical imaging applications. In this latest release, WIF has been ported to C#, expanded to provide over 10,000 functions and optimized to run faster and generate higher quality images. In addition to supporting desktop and thin-client deployment, it now also supports zero-footprint technology and powers members of the Nil products family. WIF was commercially introduced in 2008 and is already licensed by more than a dozen OEMs shipping products that visualize and manipulate CT, MRI, ultrasound, X-ray and ophthalmic images for diagnosis, analysis and guidance of therapy.
