Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation between elasticity (as measured by elastography) and (a) Banff score for fibrosis, (b) glomerular filtration rate assessed by creatinine clearance, (c) glomerular filtration rate assessed by insulin clearance [ Time Frame: 3 months and 12 months after graft ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of technical failures [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  2. Tolerance (assessed by a questionnaire) [ Time Frame: 3 months and 12 months after graft ]
  3. Evolution of the elasticity of the transplant between 3 and 12 months after graft [ Time Frame: 3 months and 12 months after graft ]
  4. Correlation between elasticity and arterial resistance index [ Time Frame: 3 months and 12 months after graft ]
