Ultrasound or CT scan to detect small hernia?

I have what I think may be a non-protruding umbilical hernia. My doc did a physical evaluation and said he couldn't tell if what I have is a hernia or not.

What is the best, definitive way to get this diagnosed? Would an ultrasound or CT scan be better to detect a small hernia?
