Organ transfer. Medic carrying a coolbox containing an organ or organs for transplant surgery. The box keeps organs cool so that they can survive for a longer period outside a body. Organ transfers between hospitals, by air or by road, 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, so tissue matching is carried out across a large area.
