PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility of diffusion-tensor (DT) imaging at 3 T for functional assessment of transplanted kidneys. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by the local ethics committee; written informed consent was obtained. Between August 2009 and October 2010, 40 renal transplant recipients were prospectively included in this study and examined with a clinical 3-T magnetic resonance (MR) imager.
