Summary

Renal transplants are the most frequent visceral transplant, and because of the absence of nephrotoxicity and radiation, ultrasound is widely used to monitor grafts and assess for complications. Complications can be categorised as vascular, parenchymal, ureteric and perinephric collections, with many occurring at predictable times post transplant. Awareness of these pathologies and their features is vital for all radiologists to enable early intervention and prolong graft survival.
