Acute rejection is one of the key influencing factors
associated with the survival period of renal allograft.
The aim of this study is to find useful indications for
diagnosing acute renal allograft rejection in the early
stage. The results shows that DKI and ASL were both able
to detect the early functional changes by measuring
diffusion and perfusion properties of transplanted
kidneys, showing a reduction of cortical and medullary
values, especially in the cortex.
