Organ transfer. Nurse carrying a case (at lower right) used to transfer organs for transplant surgery. The case can be used to keep the organ cool so that it can survive for a longer period outside a body. 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 most of the same tissue-types. This has led to matching between donors and recipients at different hospitals.
