DWI in human transplantation was regarded as a promising indicator of graft dysfunction. We performed DWI using rFOV ss-EPI with multi-b values in 46 renal allografts recipients. Our results showed cortical ADC T and F P differed significantly among eGFR levels. Cortical F P presented significant differences between each two subgroups and correlated positively and significantly with eGFR. In conclusion, the present investigation demonstrates that multi-b rFOV DWI holds potential for functional evaluation of renal allografts after transplantation.
