Human-organ transplantation is the only effective therapy for many life-threatening diseases. However, despite an increase in transplant successes, the lack of a concomitant increase in donor organ availability has led to a growing disparity between supply and demand. Much research has thus focused on defining and implementing policies for increasing donor availability, identifying suitable organ recipients, and documenting transplant procedures. A novel organ-selection process uses a multiagent system called Carrel+ to let geographically dispersed transplant physicians deliberate over organ viability to increase the availability of organs for transplantation
