Kidney transplantation is currently considered as the preferred treatment for end-stage renal disease, this study aims to explore the performance of BOLD-fMRI and IVIM of renal transplants kidney patients with CKD. The results showed the D value in renal cortical could well identify and distinguish normal kidney and diseased kidney. The R2* value could indirectly reflect deoxyhemoglobin to assess the degree of renal function impairment. BOLD-fMRI and IVIM can provide a more accurate and comprehensive understanding of the functional information of the chronic kidney metabolism.
