BACKGROUND Diagnosis and characterization of incisional hernia are often established by CT, which incurs radiation exposure and substantial cost in clinical practice. The purpose of this study was to determine the comparative effectiveness of surgeon-performed Dynamic Abdominal Sonography for Hernia (DASH) vs CT for incisional hernia evaluation.
