Rome, Italy - February 28th, 2013. NoMachine, a global leader in remote desktop access and application delivery for Linux and other platforms, today announced that Radboud University Nijmgen Medical Center uses NoMachine software to facilitate remote collaboration at radiology events aimed at technologists, medical students and clinicians around the globe.
Dr. Jelle Barentsz, a professor of Radiology and Chair of the Prostate MR-Center of Excellence at the Radboud University Nijmgen Medical Center, demonstrated this week how NoMachine's remote access software can facilitate group collaboration and lead to more informed diagnosis at the recent event organized by the Society of Abdominal Radiology “ARC 2013 Prostate MRI Workshop” in Hawaii.
The training course “Advanced MRI Techniques of the Prostate Hands-On Workshop” provided participants, based at the annual event in Maui, with access via NX to a Linux-hosted seamless proCAD environment on site. Participants each had their own virtual x11 instance and could investigate numerous pseudonymous case scenarios, explore proCAD, and discuss the advanced MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans to formulate diagnoses and possible treatment of tumours. proCAD is an Integrated Prostate MRI software platform, produced by DIAG Technologies, and is used by clinicians to diagnose prostate cancer.
With users connecting from Windows clients, Dr. Barentsz utilized NoMachine's virtual desktop access software on Linux to demonstrate proCAD, how it is used to analyze patients' scans, and provide participants with a full hands-on educational session.
Dr. Barentsz uses advanced MRI scans as a critical step to more accurate patient diagnoses. Previous events have seen Dr. Barentsz using NoMachine technology to prove how the sharing of these images between specialists across the globe in real-time is integral to faster, better diagnosis and treatment of tumors. By using NX, Dr. Barentsz is building up what he calls a "center of excellence network". NoMachine technology ensures that each member of the hospital network has a smooth, dependable and secure connection within their institute.
NoMachine is the creator of NoMachine NX software, a Linux-based enterprise-class solution for secure remote access, multi-platform application delivery, and hosted desktop deployment. NoMachine revolutionizes the way users access their computing resources across the Internet to make desktop access as easy and widespread as Web browsing. Regardless of location or the network environment, NoMachine's NX software provides real-time performance in remote sessions, automatically tuning itself to network bandwidth and latency parameters.
