Before getting imaging, sometimes a referral to a general surgeon can diagnose a hernia related issue without imaging.
Ultrasounds are user dependent and can miss hernias.
CTs can miss hernias, you can increase hernia identification by doing a valsalva (bearing down like you were trying to force out a bowel movement to increase intra-abdominal pressure) during the CT scan.
