Re: cavitation

oil in coolant and pressure building in cooling system after a cold start, that is the easy way. the hard way is pulling the glow plugs and pressurize the cylinder at BDC "piston at bottom of cylider, with both valves closed, loosen rocker arms.
leave rad cap open and watch for cheese cylinder leak, hope you dont find any...

Re: cavitation

If you mean to check for the degree of damage (short of wall perforation) there is no simple way because the damage occurs from the inside out. Cavitation damage is a slow, progressive "disease" that can be stopped but not reversed.
