RSNA: Claron's Nil viewer featured at IHE Image Sharing Demonstration

Claron Technology showcased its Nil (No Install) viewer in the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2012 IHE Image Sharing Demonstration.

Nil web-based viewer is an enterprise-class image sharing and visualization technology. Nil supports retrieval and viewing of 2D and 3D images, reports and other imaging-related data from any XDS-I-compliant archive using web-enabled computers. The product is available in two configurations: NilShare, a non-diagnostic view for commmunication with referring physicians; and NilRead, a diagnostic viewer with advanced viewing capabilities.

At the RSNA Image Sharing Demonstration, attendees completed mock imaging procedures, from scheduling them on a RIS through results reporting. Then, they can access data from the RSNA’s online XDS registry-repository and share information with other attendees using technology from participating image-sharing vendors. The RSNA architecture is similar to the technology utilized in the RSNA Image Share pilot project, funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.

At RSNA, all showcased image exchange architecture will be based on the IHE Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing for Imaging (XDS-I) profile. Claron and other image sharing vendors were required to demonstrate the capabilities of their technology as part of the selection process.
