Default reusing rings

Full of questions at the moment an this is one more. If an engine has been run in on an engine dyno and then later found to have problems requiring a teardown for inspection, Is it possible to reuse the same rings or should a new set be purchased and fitted? The block has new Darton MID sleeves.

The motor would have only been run in on the dyno and not done any road miles. I expect a skim of the bores will be done prior to reassembly, so would the rings still get a seal after this has been done?
