Abstract

Surgical repair of rectus muscle diastasis is a durable procedure, and magnetic resonance imaging follow-up is an excellent way to see the durability of the procedure. Magnetic resonance imaging is not operator-dependent and has no interobserver variations. It has the advantage of being a safe, radiation-free procedure with repeatability and dependability.
