Is there a way to find out without a teardown whether high oil consumption is caused by sticking oil rings?

I tried adding both the Seafoam and eventually the MMO to the oil on a previous car. At first the Seafoam made the oil get very dirty, very quickly, but by the 3rd oil change it didn't make the oil get dirty at all, but oil consumption was still the same at 1/2 qt per fillup. It did solve a lot of my lifter noise (except at cold startup), so I guess the additive cleaners did have some benefit.
