Ovarian dermoid cyst

Case contributed by Dr Ahmed Abdrabou


Right iliac fossa pain.

Patient Data

Age: 40
Gender: Female

Right ovarian lesion displays bright signal in T1 and T2 and suppressed signal in STIR denoting fat content.

Left sided uterine rounded lesion exhibits isointense signal in T1 and hypointense singal in T2 representing interstitial myoma.

Case Discussion

Fat suppression technique e.g. STIR and FAT SAT are used to differentiate between ovarian dermoid cyst and hemorrhagic cyst as dermoid cyst contains fat and its signal will be suppressed in fat suppression.
