Software developer Claron Technology has formally launched a collection of components designed to help OEMs rapidly develop medical visualization products. These components, dubbed the Withinsight Framework (WIF) platform, speeds the development by OEMs of software that automates  segmentation, registration, and the detection of abnormalities; controls the rendering of multiple data volumes; clips and colorizes spatial regions of the data; and measures statistics. WIF supports the development of standalone applications as well as ones that run on thin-client servers. WIF evolved first for internal use by Toronto-based Claron, which a year ago released the platform to seven OEM partners. These OEMs have since applied WIF to develop a range of products CT, MRI, and ultrasound, including ones addressing real-time processing on-board scanners and therapy guidance.
