Imaging in Transplants

Transplantation can be associated with various complications ranging from vascular to immunologic. Traditionally, the complications were checked using biopsies, but with the advances, the complications are now investigated using non-invasive imaging techniques like Color Doppler Ultrasound, CT and MRI angiography, and nuclear imaging. But, ultrasound is the ideal initial imaging modality followed by color Doppler ultrasound, as they are readily available, and provide an almost complete diagnosis in the first imaging modality in both renal and pancreatic transplants. Accurate imaging is crucial in the precise description of abnormalities, fluid collections, and the localization of leaks. An ultrasound followed by CT or MRI and angiography are the prescribed imaging modalities after a transplant.
