In brief: Mostly bones
X-rays are good for seeing bones but to see soft tissues like the brain, then a ct or MRI scan is usually necessary.
Indirectly, growths can disort the bones. Diseases that affect the bone minerals also show up. Your physician can help you understand why they ordered the x-ray test versus a ct or MRI scan. Best wishes.
