Current guidelines recommend cardiovascular risk assessment prior to renal transplantation. There is currently no evidence for the role of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in this population, despite an established evidence base in the non-chronic kidney disease (CKD) population. Our aim is to determine the feasibility and safety of dobutamine stress CMR (DSCMR) imaging in the risk stratification of CKD patients awaiting renal transplantation.
