Currently, US and the other modalities remain an indispensable tool for evaluating the kidney transplant recipient with graft dysfunction or post-transplant related complications.

Asif Sharfuddin. Summary Kidney transplantation can be associated with various complications that vary from vascular complications to urologic disorders to immunologic adverse effects.
Introduction Kidney transplant dysfunction can present with a rising serum creatinine level, decreasing urine output, and pain and tenderness over the graft, but often it is clinically asymptomatic and presents only with an isolated increase in serum creatinine.

Table 1. Ultrasonography Color Doppler US is considered the first-line imaging modality to evaluate graft dysfunction because of its portability, rapid technique, and lack of radiation or toxic dye. Parenchymal Abnormalities In delayed graft function due to acute tubular necrosis ATN , US findings are nonspecific on gray-scale imaging. Figure 2. Figure 3. Perinephric Complications In the immediate postoperative period, hematomas are the most commonly encountered fluid collections. Vascular Complications Transplant renal artery stenosis TRAS is usually diagnosed within the first year after transplantation, with an incidence rate of 8.
Figure 4. Postbiopsy Complications Despite advances in noninvasive diagnostic tests and techniques, US-guided percutaneous core needle biopsy is still required in many cases of allograft dysfunction. Figure 5. Newer US Techniques Contrast-enhanced sonography CES with injected agitated microbubbles may have a much higher sensitivity and specificity and may be more useful for detecting infarction and cortical necrosis, particularly in ischemic renal transplants Computed Tomography CT provides superb anatomic detail of the graft and surrounding tissues, although its use is limited because of the requirement for nephrotoxic contrast agents.
Figure 6. Figure 7. Nuclear Medicine Imaging NM imaging of the allograft is a noninvasive, non-nephrotoxic tool to evaluate graft dysfunction, particularly in the early postoperative period. Figure 8. Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI has increasingly become popular in kidney transplants and can be used as a second-line imaging technique if US or CT has been nondiagnostic in cases of parenchymal lesions or perinephric collections.
