    Right ovary. A small hyperechoic lesion, with lipidic components is evidenced within the right ovary.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: US image;

    Left ovary. A polymorphe mass (6 cm in diameter) with both hyperechoic and hypoechoic areas is revealed.

    A hypodense lesion (15 mm in diameter) is evident into the right ovary. At left, behind the uterus, a mass (4 cm in diameter) is present.

    A lesion (15 mm in diameter) is evident into the right ovary. At left, behind the uterus, a mass (4 cm in diameter) is present.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Unenhanced and enhanced Ct scans.;

    Unenhanced CT scan.

    The left lesion, with heterogeneous contents, is delimited by thin walls. A calcification is evidenced into the lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Unenhanced CT scan.;

    CT scans: HU density measures.

    A small nodule of fat density is present within the right ovary. The left lesion also contains lipidic substances (negative HU density). The fatty component is adequate to identify these masses as dermoid cysts.
