Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It is missed because either the magnet strength is low i.e less than 1.5 tesla or the tear has undergone natural attempt to heal resulting in scarring and fibrosis.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
