Caption: Organ transfer. Gloved hands of a hospital worker holding a dish containing a human organ for transplantation. The dish is ice-packed in order to cool the organ so that it can survive outside a body. The organ was transferred to the hospital in the box (red) in the background. This box is specially designed to help keep the organ cool. Organ transfers between hospitals are often needed for transplant operations. This is because organ transplants are most successful when the donor and the recipient share the same tissue-types. This has led to matching between donors and recipients at different hospitals.
