Xray for Dermoid ovarian cyst

Patient: Can a regular ovarian cyst appear on Xray or only the dermoid type?

 

 

Doctor: X-ray of an ovarian cyst will be helpful in determining whether the cyst is composed of solid materials or a combination of fluid and solid materials. Thus an x-ray may reveal whether the cyst is a benign dermoid cyst or a malignant tumor.
