In brief: Ultrasound

Endoanal ultrasound is common.
A specialized prob is inserted into the rectum and ultrasound images are obtained to evaluate the muscles of the anal sphincter . If defects are noted they may be repaired

In brief: Sphincter eval

Still somewhat experimental but some docs are able to visualize the anal sphincter with u/s to evaluate for whether it is intact.
