Renal transplantation has transformed the management of end stage renal disease (ESRD), along with prolonging survival it offers good quality of life with low morbidity. Imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis of complications arising in renal transplant. Ultrasound (US) with Doppler is the first-line imaging modality for evaluation of renal graft, with US, Doppler and nuclear medicine being the main imaging modalities. Computed tomography scan (CT), Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) are used as problem solving tools in indeterminate cases. Interventional radiology plays a crucial role in the management of complications. Use of real time ultrasound guidance for percutaneous biopsy is now almost universal.
