Delayed graft function is a form of acute renal failure that results in post-transplantation oliguria. Recently, the pathophysiology of renal ischemia and reperfusion injury has been recognized as the consequence to the development of delayed graft function. The goal of the present study is to perform IVIM MRI and non-contrast MRA in patients after renal transplantation to evaluate the micro-structural and macrocirculation status of graft kidneys. The experimental results may be considerably useful in early diagnosis of delayed graft function and also understanding the machanism of development of the disorder.
