Doctors usually diagnose an anal fistula by examining the area around the anus. To determine the depth and direction of the fistula tract, the doctor can produce drainage from the external opening. If fistula is not visible on skin surface, additional tests like Anoscopy is done. In this test a special instrument is used to see inside your rectum and anus. To better define the Fistula, the doctor may order an MRI or Ultrasound as well.
