In brief: Colonoscopy
Colonoscopy is a painless technique that visualizes the entire colon.
An older test is a barium enema. This will also show diverticulosis.

In brief: Diverticulosis
Because diverticula by themselves usually do not cause problems, most people learn they have diverticulosis during routine screening examinations for colorectal cancer or during tests that check for other intestinal problems.
Diverticulitis, on the other hand, is usually diagnosed during an acute attack.
