March 5, 2014 — Claron Technology announced it has been awarded CE mark for its NilRead zero-footprint viewer for the diagnostic interpretation of medical images. Coinciding with this, Claron has opened its 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 (picture archiving and communications system) viewer.
NilRead features customizable hanging protocols, prior-current comparisons and extensive measurements. Its advanced visualization features include thin/thick slabs, MIP (maximum intensity projection), volume rendering, PET/CT (positron emission tomography/computed tomography) 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 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 makes Nil a companion to any multispecialty enterprise archive.
“NilRead received [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] FDA and Health Canada clearance for diagnostic use several months ago and has been extremely well-received in North America,” said 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 [European Congress of Radiology] with localization in all major European languages to facilitate adoption through the European community.”
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Tom Tilmans to Claron to spearhead the introduction of Nil in Europe,” said Reuven Soraya, sales and marketing vice president for Claron. “Tom brings a wealth of experience and business connections to the company. With Tom’s expertise and the new CE mark, we are looking forward to extending the value of Nil to European customers.”
