Which Diagnostic Scan is Sufficient to Reliably Detect a Failed Diastasis Repair?

I'm certain MRI is the gold standard but are others (in capable hands) sufficient for most/all cases?

Diagnostic scan to verify diastasis repair

A sonogram, read by an excellent diagnostic radiologist, should be able to detect whether a diastasis repair has failed. Particularly if you are paying for a diagnostic test out of pocket, I would recommend that you go this route first. Many insurance carriers may require this as a prerequisite.
