Control of Renal Transplant Function by Diagnostic Imaging
The kidney allograft is subject to a range of complications that can threaten its function. In addition to the surgical and urological complications, particularly rejection, ischemic damage and acute renal failure (ARF) are worthy of mention. Recognizing the type of functional disorder is of vital importance to the survival of transplant and patient; the methods of imaging available up to now, however, do not always provide the necessary diagnostic certainty. This study investigates the diagnostic possibilities of a new radiological diagnostic method, dynamic CT, based on about 300 examinations performed on more than 100 patients of the General Hospital in Malmö, Sweden (University of Lund), starting in the fall of 1979.
