I had a CT scan that showed a fat filled ovarian dermoid cyst & the vaginal us said it was fluid filled. Which one is accurate?

In brief: Probably CT scan

Generally speaking, the ultrasound is a better study for the gyn structures.
However, my personal experience is that the ct scan is better at picking up acute inflammatory processes such as these.
