UMHS to take Trestle Holdings' technology
Digital imaging and telemedicine applications provider Trestle Holdings Inc. will deploy its live microscopy product, MedMirco, at the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS).

The system will be used to connect its pathology lab to the internet, allowing UMHS' researchers and pathologists to interactively view and navigate slides in real-time from any remote location with internet access. MedMicro will also be integrated with the company's grossing station for review of tissue specimens prior to slide preparation.

UMHS says it also will use the grossing station primarily for documentation of the physical appearance of placentas processed for pathology evaluation.
