Abstract

Urologic complications after kidney transplant are important causes of morbidity, hospitalization, and transplant loss. We report 2 cases of clinically unsuspected urine extravasation after kidney transplant that were diagnosed accurately using SPECT/CT (single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography) radionuclide renal scan and corrected using surgery. These cases emphasize the value of dynamic radionuclide renal scan using SPECT/CT in the detection of urologic complications.
