Transplantation is often performed for organ failure and is occasionally encountered for emergency evaluation. According to data published by United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), out of 24,383 transplants reported to Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) in 2014, there were 14,151 kidney, 5,527 liver, and 792 pancreas transplants. Familiarity with their normal findings and potential complications is imperative, as management is often urgent or emergent, based on the imaging findings.
