Abstract

Ultrasonography is an excellent tool for evaluation of the renal transplant in the immediate postoperative period and for long-term follow-up. In this article, normal imaging findings and complications of renal transplantations are described. Disease processes are divided into vascular, perinephric, urologic and collecting system, and parenchymal abnormalities. Attention is paid to the time of occurrence of each complication, classic imaging findings, and potential pitfalls.
