Can a scan detect asherman syndrome. I have had no periods for a while but really bad period cramps usually at the time it is meant to arrive.

In brief: Only hysteroscopy/US

Because the walls of the uterus are collapsed on each other and/or filled with endometrial tissue, it is unlikely that a CT/MRI scan would be able to see any scar tissue.
In order to see scar tissue, the uterus has to be filled with fluid first on hysteroscopy/sonohysterogram/hysterosalpingogram.
