In brief: 99% plus
An MRI with contrast of the internal auditory canals will pick up 99% of acoustic neuromas.
Not perfect, but very close. Tiny acoustics can be missed.

In brief: Yes
An MRI of the posterior fossa and internal auditory canals with and without contrast (gadolinium) can easily detect the majority of worrisome acoustic neuromas.
