The Uniform Anatomical Gift Acts provide that organs, tissues, or parts may generally be used for transplantation, therapy, research, and medical education. However, it is not always possible for organs and tissues to be used for all purposes. Some organs or tissues may not be used if it would interfere with an autopsy or another investigation. Additionally, if you suffer from a particular disease or die under certain circumstances, your organs and tissues may not be suitable for transplantation. Certain medical tests will be completed to assure that organs and tissues are acceptable for transplantation or therapy. Organs and tissues not useful for transplantation or therapy may be useful for research or education.
