Abstract

Clinical monitoring and appropriate imaging have played an important role to ensure a successful outcome for renal transplant patients. A variety of imaging options now exist, and they are routinely used in these patients. Ultrasound is the most frequent first-line imaging method in the post-operative period and for long-term follow-up. For specific indications, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and nuclear medicine examinations are often helpful. This article will review the imaging findings of the most commonly encountered complications of renal transplantation.
