Claron Technology, the leader in universal medical imaging viewers, announces that it has been awarded the CE mark for its NilRead zero-footprint viewer for the diagnostic interpretation of medical images. Coinciding with this, Claron has opened European headquarters in Hasselt, Belgium, under the direction of Tom Tilmans, director of sales. In addition to spearheading direct sales efforts, Tilmans will recruit and manage a team of European partners and distributors.
NilRead is a universal, web-based zero-footprint viewer that enables diagnostic interpretation of medical images and related digital information on a variety of computers anytime, anywhere across the enterprise and beyond. It supports viewing of all cleared DICOM imaging modalities and both 2-D and 3- D viewing. Running from a remote server, NilRead requires no software download while delivering the highest quality performance, comparable with a full-featured PACS viewer.
NilRead features customisable hanging protocols, prior-current comparisons and extensive measurements. Its advanced visualisation features include thin/thick slabs, MIP, volume rendering, PET/CT fusion and more. NilRead delivers the highest levels of security and leaves no information on the viewing hardware when the session is complete. It is the first zero-footprint viewer supporting multi- diagnostic monitor configurations.
Claron has recently extended Nil with data adapters for popular vendor neutral archive (VNA) solutions and with bi-directional Web API for integration with workflow solutions. This, combined with strong support for non-DICOM data, including native support for video and multiple image formats – such as jpeg, png, tiff, bmp, PDF and others – makes Nil the ultimate companion to a multi-specialty enterprise archive.
“NilRead received FDA and Health Canada clearance for diagnostic use several months ago and has been extremely well-received in North America,” says Claudio Gatti, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Claron Technology. “With CE acceptance, we are pleased to start offering the technology throughout Europe. The functionality of both viewers will be expanded at ECR with localisation in all major European languages to facilitate adoption through the European Community.”
Claron’s Nil family of viewers also includes NilShare for non-diagnostic use, which has been helping to meet the image sharing needs of a wide range of needs of medical facilities since 2010. Claron’s Nil enterprise viewers are in daily use at hundreds of health care facilities.
