At , we help those in the orthopaedic profession find, identify, and compare products and services related to orthopaedics. We list new and old products since you may need to remove an IM rod or revise an old prosthesis. You can search by category (like a textbook) or through computer technology. X-ray Identification is a service whereby orthopaedic surgeons and others submit digital copies of x-rays of implants to help others identify products by comparing the images on to the x-rays in their offices. It is also used by teaching facilities to show examples of the work done in orthopaedic surgery. We are barrier-free with no user fee, log-on, or registration. We ask manufacturers and suppliers to support our efforts through fees based on product enhancements. Even if they decline to enhance their products, we will still help you find them.

The American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) is a professional, non-profit, scientific and educational organization. It is one of the only national tissue banking organizations in the United States, and its membership totals more than 120 accredited tissue banks and 1,900 individual members. These banks recover tissue from more than 39,000 donors and distribute in excess of 3.2 million allografts for more than 1.75 million tissue transplants performed annually in the U.S. The overwhelming majority of the human tissue distributed for these transplants comes from AATB-accredited tissue banks. The Association was founded in 1976 by a group of doctors and scientists who had started in 1949 our nation's first tissue bank, the United States Navy Tissue Bank. Recognizing the increasing use of human tissue for transplant, these individuals saw the need for a national organization to develop standards, promote ethics and increase donations. Since its beginning, the AATB has been dedicated to improving and saving lives by promoting the safety, quality and availability of donated human tissue. To fulfill that mission, the AATB publishes standards, accredits tissue banks and certifies personnel. The association also interacts with regulatory agencies and conducts educational meetings.
