In this work, we propose contrastive learning schemes based on a 3D Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) to generate meaningful representations for kidney transplants associated with different relevant clinical information. To deal with the problem of a limited amount of data, we investigate various two-stream schemes pre-trained in a contrastive manner, where we use the cosine embedding loss to learn to discriminate pairs of inputs. Our universal 3D CNN models identify low dimensional manifolds for representing Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging series from four different follow-up exams after the transplant surgery. Feature visualization analysis highlights the relevance of our proposed contrastive pre-trainings and therefore their significance in the study of chronic dysfunction mechanisms in renal transplantation, setting the path for future research in this area.
