  I'd thought this idea had some merit as well. Alcor is after all 
concentrating on head freezing. Seems there is some problem with 
organs from bodies loaded with cryoprotectant being unsuitable for
  To make this work one would have to remove the head/brain from the 
body before loading with cryoprotectant. For some reason there 
appears to be no interest in this possibility from either Alcor, or CI.
