Claron Debuts Streamlined Image, Video Uploading to Universal Viewer at HIMSS 2014
Claron Technology’s Nil is a family of universal, zero-footprint viewers.
The technology requires a browser only, not installation of an app or engine. The technology supports mobile devices and allows zero-footprint upload of both DICOM and non-DICOM data from notebook and desktop computers.
The Nil family of viewers includes NilShare and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared diagnostic NilRead viewers.
DICOM file streaming supports integration with multiple DICOM archives in a high efficiency cache-less configuration. The data streams from the remote PACS or VNA to Nil, presenting the user with the images as they are transferred. Nil also introduces support for the recently approved RESTful DICOM web services (WADO-RS, QIDO-RS, and STOW-RS).
Nil features plugin-free support for several video formats, including mpeg4, AVI and Quicktime. Nil also extends its non-DICOM support to include native raster formats, such as jpeg, png, tiff, bmp, PDF and others. It now also supports arbitrary binary objects within the record, including any Microsoft Office and audio file.
The original files are preserved in the Nil archive or can be obtained by companion archive systems through an API. This latest release of Nil also supports more integration with electronic medical record (EMR) systems, including Epic, for an image enabled patient record.
NilRead and NilShare can be integrated into any DICOM network and are available 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.
NilShare was introduced in 2010. NilRead has been cleared for diagnostic image review by both the FDA and Health Canada. Claron is also seeking regulatory approvals in other regions.
