Abstract

Because of its direct multiplanar capability, superb soft tissue contrast and ability to obtain dynamic three-dimensional angiograms using contrast agents without nephrotoxicity, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and magnetic resonance angiography are ideal techniques for evaluating renal transplants. The following pictorial essay reviews the normal MR appearance of the transplant kidney as well as parenchymal, vascular, and peritransplant complications.
