MRI might also be used to detect suspected stress fracture.

If an MRI is contraindicated (due to other metal in the body), a CT scan can assist with the diagnosis.

In brief: MRI or ct scan

These tests will be most helpful to evaluate for fracture.
A bone scan may help confirm this as well however it doesn't show detail very well.
