Abstract

Abstract: Pancreas transplantation has become more commonplace over the past several decades. Consequently, the radiological evaluation of patients with such transplants has also become more common. Radiologists must therefore be familiar with the normal imaging appearances of pancreas transplant grafts as well as a wide variety of transplant-related complications. In this article, we review the cross-sectional imaging appearances of normal pancreas transplant grafts as well as present representative examples of complications associated with the procedure.
