MRI can miss occult (hidden) hernias. If all other workups have been exhausted sometimes a diagnostic laparoscopy is warranted to look at the abdominal wall/groin from the inside and/or dissecting in the area of concern. I have operated on plenty of patients with a negative MRI, US, CT that have groin hernias found at laparoscopy.
