KIDNEY TESTS

Renal ultrasound

Your child will have had a renal ultrasound before the transplant. This test uses sound waves to:

  • Check the size, shape, and structure of the transplanted kidney
  • Determine blood flow to the kidney and rule out thrombosis (blood clots) or urine leak
  • Identify if there is any fluid around the kidney (hematoma, lymphocele)
