Imaging is kind of a secondary tool in the diagnostic process, a good doctor will usually know what's up without them. Morphology/texture changes can be detected with all three, US being the cheapest thus preferred. But cirrhosis is a blood flow disruption type of disease, so CT an MRI imaging coupled with contrast enhancement to track perfusion changes can lend additional information. Also, any cancerous issues, caused by the cirrhosis, can be detected easily by US but will usually need CT or MRI to further characterize which pathology is likely to be involved.
