Claron Technology Debuts WIF Version 2.1

Next-generation software development platform enhances support for lesion segmentation and tracking

October 18, 2012 — Claron Technology has introduced Withinsight Framework (WIF) version 2.1, which adds advanced new segmentation tools, registration enhancements and performance improvements to the company’s innovative platform supporting efficient and rapid development of medical image visualization software. Combined with Claron’s patented fast whole-body atlas-based registration technology, these features enable the development of organ-specific automated and semi-automated volumetric lesion segmentation and tracking applications. Claron also added five new sample applications that demonstrate how to optimally use the functions and features added to WIF in the new release.

Since its introduction in 2008, WIF has provided leading healthcare companies with the software toolkit for the development of more than 30 applications, ranging from 3-D ultrasound through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) computer-aided detection (CAD), computed tomography angiography (CTA) vessel analysis, picture archiving and communication system (PACS) image reading and sharing, to therapy planning and guidance systems.

“Claron partners with some of today’s most innovative healthcare technology developers,” says Doron Dekel, co-CEO of Claron Technology. “With ongoing enhancements to WIF, we ensure these companies maintain market leadership positions without the large software maintenance expenses that in-house development requires. In addition to many incremental improvements to performance and functionality, this release offers a number of cutting-edge features, such as single-click segmentation of blob-shaped regions and powerful 3-D region editing tools. Two of our partners have already started integrating these new features into their solutions, and we expect others to follow.”

The WIF software development platform provides visualization, segmentation, registration and navigation functionality to support development of standalone, thin-client and zero-footprint medical imaging applications. Along with enhanced segmentation tools, WIF version 2.1 also provides support for additional modalities, including OPT data and multi-dimensional MRI/nuclear medicine, as well as additional registration techniques, while enhancing overall speed and performance.
