There are several reasons why an anatomical gift might not be suitable for study; anything that destroys or distorts the normal anatomy of the body extensively can make it difficult to conduct meaningful anatomical study. Some examples of conditions that make anatomical study difficult are:

  • An autopsy that has been performed
  • Serious injury or trauma
  • Infection Precautions- including HIV, Hepatitis, Tuberculosis, CJD and MRSA.
  • Recent extensive surgery (this does not mean that individuals that have had surgery are automatically disqualified);
  • Advanced muscular atrophy;
  • Donations of organs to other programs;
  • Weight in excess of 250 lbs.;
  • Bodies arriving more than 24 hours from time of death;
  • Advanced decomposition.

The Donated Body Program reserves the right to decline or accept the donation of an anatomical gift as set forth by health and safety code §7154 (a).
