Perhaps Dr. Towfigh can chime in, as she was part of a group who have published papers on imaging and their work suggested that MRI was far superior to CT or US at diagnosing *hidden/occult* hernias (i.e. those with no bulge and that are not palpable upon physical examination).
AFAIK, she still recommends dynamic MRI in such cases, but perhaps dynamic US is adequate? I think their published studies looked at standard MRI and US (not dynamic) but I’m not 100% sure, so perhaps she will comment further.
